Latvian Porcupine

Well, it's been a good weekend....
Brakes were energetic and tight. Not a lot of people at the show, but it was packed with new and old hits. I received a pineapple for my drunken enthusiasm. Fun had by all. I left the pineapple outside my neighbors door just to fuck with them when they opened their door the next morning. They will probably wonder about that one for a while.

The next day (still a little drunk) I got on the plane to Riga Latvia. It was a work sponsored trip. Basically just an excuse to party. Wanted to search out some Latvian rock music, but all I found was bad Russian metal and techno. I only had two days and I was in no shape to look very hard unfortunately. Being in the rich part of town was a musical wasteland anyhow.

Todays song is not "Porcupine or Pineapple" (which is a Brakes song from the newish album The Beatific Visions, hence the giveaway/price I got), but a track by The Ex (who else), besides I can't think of anything to post right now, and I don't have any good Latvian music (someone please recommend some)

This is not a normal Ex track but a collaboration with Belgian cartoonists Kamagurka & Herr Seele.

Just found it on the wonderful WFMU blog:
