My track of this week is a Dead Kennedys track, my favourite track of theirs. It’s probably not one of their best known tracks but I choose Moon over Marin. Though you can still feel the bile spitting through Jello Biafra’s lyrics and through East Bay Ray’s guitar playing there is a control and a subtlety to this track that I really really like.
The track is the closing chapter of the 1982 Plastic Surgery Disaster and is a scathing attack on the yuppification of Marin County, San Francisco – one of the wealthiest locales in the US. With that , I give over to the track itself
