about

A deluxe issue CD single containing two prescient tracks from Paul Mark's Stowaways collection. "How Do the Blind Become So Famous?" combines Brecht-ian angst with the futility of American politics, a vaudevillian cri de coeur lamenting the flight of sanity. Reputation Tango takes on the absurd rational of those who play along. Big fun from the stiletto pen of Paul Mark.

The CD single includes an additional bonus track, "Reputation Tango", which also comes from the "Stowaways" album.
