Warpaint - Live KEXP 2016-09-19 (concert)

San Francisco-based Warpaint has been active since 2004, but I just recently learned of them via Herbert, when he mentioned about seeing them in the Netherlands last November.  I don't know how I had missed them for 12 or so years, but I really like their sound.  I got "Heads Up" for Christmas but haven't had a chance to listen to it yet.

In the meantime, check out this recent performance on KEXP.  Unlike their earlier material, this reminds me of recent Radiohead (e.g., "A Moon Shaped Pool", "The King of Limbs").

Dead Kennedys - "Nazi Punks Fuck Off" (forgotten song)

Still trying to come to terms with the 2016 election...  I find that some songs from my youth are unfortunately relevant again. 

"Nazi Punks Fuck Off" is a single from the Dead Kennedys's 1981 LP "In God We Trust, Inc.

"In a real Fourth Reich you'll be the first to go" -- I guess we'll soon see.

Dead Kennedys (1981), Napalm Death (from their 1993 EP), Napalm Death + Jello Biafra - "Nazi Trumps Fuck Off" (2016)
