BLAGO INSPIRATIONAL HYMNS FOR THE MAN AND THE MIFFED

Dude, and lest we forget, cos we did for too long--- Bird Names Blago song suite from 2005, which Dave Lineal just reposted for download, about his fantasy relationship with the gov'ner. Bird Names are on tour right now, actually, they bring the brokeness of Chicago to you. Behind the drums--two of my fave women of this city--Nora and Phelan--the kind of fantastic punk-out supergirls that you used to read about in Cometbus, the Maggie and Hopey of the Atomix counter; their lives an atlas for free womens inspiration.

Also, the second to last time I saw Bird Names, Dave was wearing this nice red checked shirt that evidenced itself to be a woman's blouse--when he would play guitar, the darts would kind of hike up and by the end of the song, he'd have a phantom breast. They played some chooglin songs that sounded like American Beauty and I did not mind a bit. I watched and wondered, will they be our B-52s, or will they be our Kilkenny Cats? Totally TBA.
