McLaughlin Groove

By 2008.03.07 tags: , , , , . Comment»

PRI’s Fair Game asked Andrew W. K. to write a rocker based on words from TV’s shout-fest The McLaughlin Group, “The McLaughlin Groove” (0:47 mp3):

“The next man on the moon will be Chinese.” Who know the pundit was a poet?

Gotta say, tho, Msr. W.K. has fallen mightily in subject-matter, reduced to covering shlock like TV’s punditocracy; especially considering his previous high-culture accomplishments, not least of which is Jackass’s “We Want Fun:”

Check the Fair Game site for host’s Faith Salie’s leadup to the song and intervu w/ W.K. (along with a link to SNL’s McGroup sendup).
