Like Morrissey, but Black and Canadian

Man, I love this song from the Dears so much. It’s been such a long time since I found a song like this that stuck in my head from the first time I heard. Sure, the guy sounds so much like Morrissey that Johnny Marr couldn’t tell the difference and his friends call him Suedehead, but when was that ever such a bad thing?

(psss – They’re going to be in MPLS in a couple weeks with the Soundtrack of our Lives. At the 400 bar, so I should go, right?)

Also in heavy rotation:
* Low – The Great Destroyer
* Interpol – PDA
* Pubic Enemy – Fight the Power
* Rage Against the Machine – Bulls on Parade
* Colin Hay – Overkill (Acoustic)
