My bud Anners loves this band called Interpol. I used to feel all old and crappy because I didn’t know who they were, but then I found out that no one knew who they were except Anners and about 6 other people who visit her blog. Actually, it’s probably a few more than that because I’ve had a few people find my blog by typing things like “Interpol” and “Paul Banks tattoo.”
Anyhoo, I was driving to Waldbaum’s earlier today and I was listening to this new radio station. I like it because they play a lot of old fogey music that I can listen to like Thin Lizzy, and they also play some other stuff that I find frightening and confusing. All of a sudden the DJ started going on about Interpol and how great they were. Apparently they played Radio City last year and I missed the whole thing. Then he played a song. I found out later that it was called “Evil.” I don’t remember much about it except that it made me want to kill myself. I didn’t. But then I looked up the video on YouTube and it made me want to kill myself all over again.
And people used to get on my case when I was a kid for listening to Judas Priest. Sheesh.
Here’s the video, judge for yourself. I tried Anners. If it makes you feel any better I almost drove off the road when I heard him say Interpol. I’m sorry I thought it was all a figment of your imagination.
