The Listening Club - 13th November 2016

Greetings folks,

Well, fuck. Rendered very low and pretty much speechless by the last week's events. So long Leonard, you got out just in time. Meanwhile, let's all keep being excellent to each other and our communities and work up those Plan B's. We damn well gonna need them now.

Last week, aka a lifetime ago, @Nessiest was in the chair, smoothing our souls with "Treasure House" by Cat's Eyes. Many thanks to her for the pick and for sailing the frisbaton across to @wojsvenwoj, who's here with this week's pre-match...

"What a week. 

A kidney punch of a Presidential election here in the States that, of course, has ramifications well beyond our borders. Leonard Cohen's passing. A new Tribe Called Quest record.

Needless to say, the election has dominated my thoughts and driven a lot what I've been listening to since Tuesday. The early days of punk -- its rawness, speed, anger and, at least at times, political awareness -- has been where I've landed as my mood seems to be on that wavelength. 

So, figured this would be a good selection in that it's a little more political than most, captures a lot of what I am feeling now, and wraps it up in sweaty, adrenaline-soaked bow.

Drinking club: Lone Star"
