Bart Mendoza, a San Diego musician/writer and all around scene mainstay for the past few decades, posted a query on Facebook, and I'm looking forward to seeing the comments that follow. He asked:
"Working on the next edition of Sounds Like San Diego (VII !!) to be held once again at the wonderful Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad (date TBA) - What songs by San Diegan's 1920 - 2010 would you like to see included?"
Leave it to Mike Stax (Loons, Ugly Things) to come up with a good one, the Lyrics' "So What". Perfect choice. A case could be made for many others, but that one, for all of its garage-era snottiness, is perhaps the most poetic fuck off ever recorded in these parts.
