penk fleg

I had one of those brilliant/awful ideas the other day at Lisa's art opening, for a performance piece/recording: Monochrome Flag. The idea would be to do something very similar to what the Ex-Lion Tamers did 15 years or so ago--cover Wire's Pink Flag in its entirety, verbatim, down to the space between songs--except that all the chords would be replaced with E. Same rhythms and everything, though.

Who's into it?

It's an awful idea. I'm totally down!

I'm afraid that except for "Reuters" such a performance/recording would sound a lot like READ & BURN. Never have so few chords done so much for so long.

I'd be in except I don't think I can play an E. Also that READ & BURN comment above is a) snarky and b) true.
