Dog's Breakfast

Here's the big test. There're so many things going for this track. First off, there's the bogus Latin of the band name. Then there's the Big Chill factor - it feels so transgressive to champion anything by PH, it's sort of contra-contrarion. This song comes from an album with a seafaring theme (see Little River Band post). What's more, it's a disaster song, a shipwreck song. A grand tradition. This one always reminds me of Neutral Milk Hotel, as a bloated band with baroque tendencies.
