Song Notes: This is a cover of the Kirsty MacColl song by a local band. Purty Mouth are a local alt. country band—a local gay alt. country band, actually. Although they're actually a country band first—they're not a one-joke gimmick band. They've got a strong sense of musical history (live, they'll do a bunch of Carter Family songs, for example), and it's obvious that they're doing that sort of music not because it's an amusing juxtaposition (though it IS) of gay-themed lyrics in a musical genre that's typically thought of as politically conservative, but instead because they actually love this music. The original of this song is a bit better than the Purty Mouth version, but they get all sorts of points for having turned me on to the original in the first place. So, you know, check them out! They're keen. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
