Song of the day
"Map Ref. 41ºN 93ºW", by Wire.
I always assumed those coordinates would put me somewhere in the UK. In fact, it is a road south-east of Des Moines, Iowa. Which suggests that they may have just made it up. But that is Wire in a nutshell: confounding our expectations since 1977.
Oh, and did I mention that this is one of my favourite songs ever?
