Ear, Nose, and Throat

On Friday night, I headed down to Indie Coffee to see singer/songwriter Chris Otepka, who is the former singer for the now-defunct Chicago band Troubled Hubble. Their 2005 album "Making Beds in Burning Houses" was one of that year's best. Otepka is just another example of the injustice of the music industry - he's good enough to warrant nationwide recognition, yet it's people like Fergie who become household names by discussing her "lady lumps."

Anyway, here's "Ear, Nose, and Throat, Pt. 1" from Troubled Hubble. The best song you've heard that argues for universal health care. (As I have mentioned before, you have to make some concessions when you're a conservative music fan.) Enjoy.
