And then last Tuesday, Cook County Board president Toni Preckwinkle remarked that Ronald Reagan deserves a "special place in hell" for his handling of the war on drugs—a comment that Sam Worley refers to as a "vital nonissue" in his post last week headlined "Free Toni Preckwinkle!" In honor of Preckwinkle's "non-troversy" I've been spinning the LA hardcore punk band's seminal album, which, in addition to being marginally relevant again thanks to Preckwinkle, is also an excellent slice of thrashy political punk that soundtracks angst and disenchantment unsurprisingly well.
Today's 12 O'Clock Track is the album's title cut, "Reagan's In." It's short and fast and pissed.
