The Way We Live Now

In 1987, at the height of the Reagan era, LA’s greatest punk (?) band, X, released what even then we knew would be their swan song, See How We Are. X were never ashamed of the poetry in their rock’n’roll, and in the title track they use it to remind us that the political is always personal. Now, The American Street uses See How We Are to remind us that things haven’t changed much in nearly 20 years.

    T’is a quark a quirk
    or do’th God smirk?
    in a vector he do’th lurk
    calling thee a jerk
    thy duty thou did’st shirk
