Titus Andronicus

I've been listening to Titus Andronicus's new CD: The Airing of Grievances on repeat all day. Two quick notes: "Titus Andronicus" is a Shakespeare play that features ancient Romans and Goth at their best (raping and killing each other, with a Moor thrown in). Second, "The Airing of Grievances" is one of the rites of Festivus. A very entertaining contrast.

I can't write reviews worth poop, so just check out their website and listen to the songs.

Two favorite tracks: "Joset of Nazareth" which jacks the harmonica from Springsteen's "Promised Land" and the eponymous "Titus Andronicus".

Check them out Patterson, I think you'd like them.
