Because I thought we should have something good from the '80s here to counterbalance the last post. Because Rhea and I are going to see them tomorrow night at City Winery. Because The Mekons Rock 'n' Roll is one of the truly great rock albums released in my lifetime. Because we're actually going to Memphis on Wednesday (more on that later this weekend.) Because brilliant art - even if it comes in the form of cheaply made, badly pixelated videos on YouTube - needs no excuse.
Destroy your safe and happy lives before it is too late!
