Why they punish themselves I don't know, but God willing, we'll put on a show of one kind or another.

After "Family Planning", my favorite Bylaw tune done live, right here:

This one is just so joyful, you can't help but smile and Donny becomes your new hero (you had me at flaming saxophanist...). Came out last year on a limited Australia-only 7"

You can't beat the Steve Monite original version (though a grand for the album is a touch steep). Frank Ocean did a great job live at Coachella last year, but here Theophilus London and Tame Impala have a pretty good crack at it.
