Me in my stars and stripes overcoat, you in your hammer and sickle tights

Songdog - Days Of Armageddon

So imagine Allen Ginsberg was born in the Welsh valleys and became the lead singer of a band rather than a beat poet...this is how it might sound.

Like the Manics, Songdog hail from Blackwood in South Wales. Listening to his fractured lyrics, it's perhaps no surprise to discover that vocalist Lyndon Morgans is an award winning playwright.

I first heard this apocalyptic alt-folk gem a couple of years ago on one of those free CDs you get on the front of Q magazine.

And I'd quite like to buy a stars and stripes overcoat, but I can't find one on eBay anywhere...
