Deal Castle, Kent.

The Rebel Black Dot Drinking Song of the Day
Less Than Jake, "Harvey Wallbanger" from Greetings & Salutations from Less Than Jake (T.L.A.M.)

Commentary: "Harvey Wallbanger" is more about dire economic straits than drinking, per se, though of course it is the desperation of (relative) poverty that fuels the drinking.

"We are recession royalty,
Taking Adderall to stay awake
And alcohol to fall asleep…

"Your family tree is falling down,
The future calls, you lose your house,
Three cheers for the down and out!
Let's have a toast for living now!
Fly the flag for the proud
Falling backwards,
Here's our last words…

Thank you, stalled economy,
For all of my uncertainty."
