I remember the first time I saw Active Dog at the Windmill. I was Transfixed by the mesmerizing Bill Shirt- my birthday brother, one of my favorite front men of the day. LOVED the camp slam classic Downtown cover, where tongue firmly in cheeks, Active Dog extolled the virtues of exodus.
We all escaped our suburban hells and went downtown
Where all the lights are bright
Everyone’s waiting for you.
My heartfelt thanks to Bill Shirt (Scherk) - Patron saint of the suburban rats.
Out on the Frontier by Los Popularos (I can’t make out all the words, but these jump out:)
Out on the frontier
Machines are screaming in my ear
I’ve come to lend a hand
To save this wretched land
It’s easy being happy these days
Life’s like that
Everyday the scene is the same
As we work we look up
A message comes and but you can’t hear
The hopes alive
A promise dies
And you smile
