To make up for missing last week and to show that I am not really a party pooper to all you V-day-o-philes (note the name of the store they go into in Our Lips Are Sealed), a double dose of the Go-Gos, whose bassist is/was Kathy Valentine, for this week's Καθολικός διάκονος traditio, and a day early. So, here are the the cuties of the LA punk scene. Yes, the L.A. punk scene. If you knew it, then you'd know. The sound quality on We Got the Beat is not great, but this early video, filmed in London, is a great flashback. The song works much better with a raucous, particpating, out-of-control audience.
That's more like it, home at the Whiskey-a-Go-Go- L.A. 1981.
Go-Go music really makes us dance
Do the Pony puts us in a trance
Do the Watusi just give us a chance
That's when we fall in line
Yes it does:
Yes, there are a million and one other things I should be doing. Help!!
