When Big Joan Sets Up 1st August – The Wheels Come Off The Wagon

Loudon Wainwright III is, for me, the most consistently insightful chronicler of the human condition of the past 40 years. But you prefer Bob Dylan, don’t you? Because Bob Dylan talks about utopian hermit monks side saddle on the golden calf and that’s like way deep,man and he doesn’t pull funny faces and piss about while he’s singing like Loudon does.

You’re wrong.
