Louis likes:
1. The Fugazis: a punk band from Washington DC. On their CD "In on the
Killtaker", they have a song called "Smallpox Champion" about how the US
cavalry gave infected blankets to the Indians.

2. The Mekons: a punk band from England that has a lot in common with the
Fugazis musically and politically.

3. The Pogues: an Irish punk band, especially when Sean McGowan was with
them. (He was dropped because he was too heavy into the booze.) They
blend Irish folk music and Sex Pistols style with deeply nationalist
lyrics.

Not bad for a 50 year old, huh?
