“Birdbrain runs the World!/ Birdbrain is the ultimate product of Capitalism”.
Never inappropriate to the times – it seems fitting to, once again, place a little spotlight on this song, this classic polemical lyric – “Birdbrain” – Above, the recorded version, with the Denver-based band, The Glu-ons, (first released on a 7-inch and subsequently included on Holy Soul Jelly Roll) – and here’s a very different version (from Marc Olmsted’s San Francisco band, The Job) – both versions are from 1981

See here Allen in Japan in 1988 performing the song

“Birdbrain runs the Pentagon, his brother runs the CIA, Fatass Bucks!”
