All work is honorable, yeah, art is just a job

93. the New Bomb Turks - "Born Tolouse-Latrec" (from the !!Destroy-Oh-Boy!! album, Crypt, 1993)

"Born Tolouse-Latrec" has a fun lyric about art as labor, but it's more important charms are (as with most music we talk about her) sonic. It's the opener to the Turks' first LP, and it sets the pace at way-too-fast and the mood at quite aggressive (to say the least). Dunno about yall, but once in a while hearing angry midwesterners take the piss out of "serious" artists over buzzsaw guitars and drums that sound like they're chasing something is something I enjoy very much.
