The Show: What’s the point of your existence, if you don’t want to make a difference?

Fraserhead’s track of the week is JOHN PAUL‘s “Glenn” from the new album “Subjects”. A shuffling beat, a sneaky trumpet, and sharp lyrics a la “The Maltese Falcon’s a nativity play”. What’s not to love??? Nihilism has never been so cheerful. Pure gold. Tip of the hat to the one and only Bill from HUMAN PLEASURE RADIO for putting us on to it :)
