15 Folds’ theme this month: democracy. For Claudia Maté, democracy means a stars-and-stripes tattooed lamb head, “Noise of the Lambs.” DARK.
You know what else is dark? “Stars and Stripes of Corruption” by the Dead Kennedys. The comparison is too obvious to not bring up:
Like a great eternal Klansman
With his two flashing red eyes
Turn around he’s always watching
The Washington monument pricks the sky
With flags like pubic hair ringed ’round the bottom
