Song of the Day

Today’s song of the day is the Violent Femmes – Blister In The Sun.  From 1983’s debut album, the Violent Femmes, this is acoustic punk, written while (most of) the guys were in or just out of a Milwaukee high school.  The video features excerpts from the 1997 classic Grosse Point Blank, starring John Cusak as a hitman on a job who returns to his home town for his high school reunion.  The movie also stars Minnie Driver, and Alan Arkin, and features a great sound track.

Here is a link to a September 2013 interview with the band that appeared in the Village Voice.
