Live, from Bushwick, Titus Andronicus performing In a Big City from their brilliant, brand new record, ‘Local Business’ [via pitchforktv]
And every cent I ever earned I spent
And I will again
From Jersey I come
But I pump my own gas*
I’m still a bum
But I wipe my own ass
*for those who don’t know, “All gas stations in New Jersey and Oregon offer only full service and mini service; attendants are required to pump gas because customers are barred by statutes in both states from pumping their own gas. New Jersey banned self-service gasoline in 1949 after lobbying by service station owners. Proponents of the ban cite safety and jobs as reasons to keep the ban.” -wikipedia Weird.
