Mp3 of the Week: The Pilot Light

DOWNLOAD: The Pilot Light, "Ergot" (mp3)

What do you do when a band called the Pilot Light book their last show ever? Well, first you resist the call of the easy metaphor — for it is so seductive. Then you move on to grief or indifference depending on whether you’ve ever heard the band roar through a set of their scratchy, wonky, Mclusky-esque post-punk tantrums. Grief is the only appropriate response — but do yourself a favor and save it till after their last (ever) hurrah with Joan of Arc and the suddenly very popular but ultimately babbling psychos of Ponytail this Saturday, July 19, at the Middle East upstairs — it’ll be much more fun that way. What you can do now is prep yourself with “Ergot,” a righteous, swerving mess from their farewell CD.
