Smoke Break: Pylon, "Sloganistic"

Sad news from Athens at the end of this week: Randy Bewley, guitarist and founding member of the early-80's band Pylon died of a heart attack Wednesday. Pylon's legacy was cemented decades ago, influencing other Athens bands from that era like the B-52's, REM and others (see comments in the story linked).

The band had recently reformed in 2005; this is "Sloganistic," one of my favorite tunes, from a New Year's Eve 2007 show at the 40 Watt.
