Beloved Silver Jews Songwriter Quits, Lashes Out At DC Lobbyist Father
This is pretty much likeThe Empire Strikes Back, in reverse, or maybe the beltway story of Oedipus, with robots: American poet/singer David Berman has announced (on a Drag City message board) that he's shutting down his Silver Jews musical operation, and will perhaps do "muckraking," and also is not very happy about the work of his apparent father, Rick Berman, the infamous Food Industry lobbyist.
Here's Random Rules, from the actual classic, American Water. Buy these records. And Berman (Jr.), you can muckrake over here at Wonkette, although you're not going to get rich in this fringe pursuit, either.
