The flipside is a herky-jerky cover of Fear and Loathing’s “Disco Inferno”, a classic in the grunting, testicles-dragged-over-tarmacadam guitar monster style. It’s quite something to actually hear the lyrics (I had no idea), Spud’s uniquely laid-back-dread playing adds innumerable layers of meaning.

Last time I posted on Captain Spud, one respondent wondered if Devo were an influence. I suspect they were, once upon a time, but less for the music than for the attitude and the philosophical stance. Nowadays, Captain Spud stands alone.
