The Mountain Goats - "The Irony Engine"

Franklin Bruno is an amazing songwriter, writing smart songs that even academics can love. In this week's Tuesday Tune, I'm offering the Mountain Goats covering Bruno's "The Irony Engine" in an October 19, 2000 WFMU performance.

The synergy of John Darnielle and Franklin Bruno is mesmerizing. Their album together (as the "Extra Glenns), Martial Arts Weekend, is one of my favorites of all time, but I won't bore anyone with that sermon again. Hear for yourself.
