The Summer of Our Discontent

These are the dog days of the our summer of discontent.

The typical bread and circuses have not been so satisfying - especially when you are short on the bread.  There is plenty of anger to go around, but apparently not enough to get folks off the couch

It is hard times, my friends.  But its been worse and its been crazier.  As Brother Jimmy was fond of saying, it is time to "break on through.

To help us on the ride, I offer this crunchy little gem from The Greenhornes, The Cincinnati-based band is better known as being Jack White's bandmates for his unstriped diversions. But Jack knows his stuff.  These guys are the real deal. This track from their 2002 album Dual Mono is a garage-fueled thrill.
