about

As we were not permitted by Homestead to put the actual title of the song on the record jacket, "Motherfucker" became, well........truth is, I thought of it as our version of "Fortunate Son".

Some of the best lyrics I ever wrote--and in one sitting in Albert O's living room while listening to the news about Central America/Contras.

lyrics

When the rich boy decides to crack the whip/it ain't no S/M game he's playing/It's real life.

Leader, Thrills, Blackjacks, Swinging E's, Creeps In Exile and now romantic balladeer. Sort of.

This is what happens when punk rockers get older, have babies and get a little consciousness--sometimes.
