Sixeyes works the opposite of how I think music blogs should be; that is, their posts covering well-established bands are much longer than their posts where they throw a bunch of songs at you. On the other hand, maybe they just don’t want to write a lot about bands they’re not overly familiar with. I have no such hang-ups, which is why I will attempt to talk about Exit Clov (which I heard from one of Sixeyes’ posts where they throw a bunch of songs at you).
Just looking at the title, I thought MK Ultra was about John Vanderslice’s band of the same name, but evidently it isn’t, and both are named after a CIA mind control project. Awesome! What is also awesome is how catchy that song is, when all the lyrics are about mind control and LSD. Since Exit Clov is from Washington D.C. and I like their songs so much, maybe they are working for the government on another mind control plot. That would be quite the twist. To top it off, they have a better than passable cover of Working Class Hero, which is my favorite of John Lennon’s songs.
