Oh the Humanities!
I heard this on KXLU while I was driving to OTIS to talk to the Graphic Design students about zines and the impossibility of subcultures in contemporary society. I was all like "Ha ha this old postpunk song sounds like they're singing about the Jurassic." I didn't really believe it until I tracked it down on Soundcloud. Not sure what it all means, but it's all pretty catchy.
They mention M.A.'s space dog portraits and there's a line that goes "There's a dude in a hologram... and he's hounded!" which could either be referring to yours truly, or Christian Cummings' dad. Either way, whatever, right? Clearly we are living in the End Times. Here's a more ramshackle live-in-studio version. Gotta catch these guys playing out.
