The Show: Sparks Plugs

As The Joint reluctantly adapts to middle-aged life it’s heartening to see two 70ish year old brothers making angry, vibrant, catchy pop music. We reckon these might possibly be some of the best tunes of the Maels’ 50 year career.

And in this week’s edition of Lyrics Bingo match the following couplets to their respective songs:

“Ain’t left the city in months,
I guess Westfield knows what I want”

“I’m a janitor,
Oh my genitals”

“You’re a feminist until I won’t fuck you,
You’re a feminist until I talk to other guys”
