Video: Mekons – “Lawrence of California” From Deserted, out on Bloodshot/Sin Records. If I’m being honest–and really, there’s no other point in doing this–this song and video are boring.

Every year around this time I ask myself a question: Why are we doing this? There’s no really good answer. I guess the hope is there’s somebody out there who likes rock and roll music but doesn’t want to have to seek out good new stuff. So we’re providing a service.
