SONG OF THE WEEK #42: Luke Haines - "Off My Rocker At The Art School Bop"

Luke Haines' 2006 album Off My Rocker At The Art School Bop went practically unnoticed, but that can only mean that it was a perfectly fine Luke Haines album. Freddie Mills, Gary Glitter, Kendo Nagasaki... these are just some of the characters featuring on that album.
The title track (which also gives this blog its name) is a classic piece of disco and glam rock packed with brilliant melodies and Haines' characteristically smart/pretentious lyrics. As witty and clever as pop music gets.
