The Rebel Black Dot Song o' the Day: SKAugust

Mustard Plug, "Mendoza" from Evildoers Beware! (The Last Angry Rude Boy)

Skammentary: See? Love only usually, not always, ends in heartbreak in third-wave ska.
"'Cause you're too much woman for a man like me,
And my love grows faster than a growing weed,
Mendoza, Mendoza, why can't you see
That you're the only girl, you're the girl for me?…"
Being a Mustard Plug fan has always been a somewhat lovely pursuit. All the Blue Tree Whackers loved Reel Big Fish, Less Than Jake, & Mu330, but less so The Mighty Mighty Bosstones & most especially Mustard Plug. Sergeant Ska has apparently played on the same bill as Mustard Plug & reports unfavorably on their treatment of local bands. So, nobody loves Mustard Plug except me.
