Friday Flashback

It's been a long week, the sort that makes one really appreciate the fact that it's Friday! Here's a quick little ditty from Celia and the Mutations. Round & Around epitomizes what I appreciate about the musical liberation realized during the punk movement. Free from the over production and gratuitous solos of 70's arena rock, and clocking in at a blistering 1:38, it's a long forgotten example of the simple perfection so often produced during that short-lived musical revolution.

I've no idea what became of Celia, but her backing band, the Mutations, were actually one of the "big four" of London punk, The Stranglers.

Enjoy, hit play again, and have a great weekend!
