I'm enjoying Wolfgang's Vault
at the moment. Over the weekend, they sent me this compelling message.
This weekend we're featuring music that encourages you to raise a metaphorical middle finger to whomever you wish, starting off with three angry young men who bridged British pub rock to new wave: Graham Parker, Elvis Costello, and Joe Jackson. Like their punk contemporaries, they opposed the noodly, self-indulgent jamming of early 70's rock and wrote short, aggressive, anti-corporate tunes. Unlike their punk brethren, they did so with more pop sensibility and a more polished sound; the result is that you can dance while sticking it to The Man.
Oh, I LIKE "noodly and self-indulgent" too. Just enjoying the notion of dancing while sticking it to the man...while I'm at work.
