Dead Kennedys - Moon Over Marin

Moon Over Marin is from the 1982 album Plastic Surgery Disasters. Was that record named after Terry Riley's Persian Surgery Dervishes? Genuine question, by the way.

Anyway, this is easily one of the DK's best tunes. There's a clear hooky guitar line from East Bay Ray, and a tune that's full of yearning and sincerity. It's a sincerity born of hatred of yuppie shore dwellers who block access to public beaches with their properties, and a wish that should eco-geddon strike, it'll strike them first. That way, should the rich get covered in spilled oil we'll still be able to burn them as fuel.
