“Born Toulouse-Lautrec” by New Bomb Turks

Skimming through an AV Club article on the Riot Grrrl era of early nineties, this song caught my attention.

An audio blast to your ears, yes?  Anyway, only the title names drops Lautrec, so it makes me wonder if the writer had a list of names picked out before choosing the Parisian artist.  The song deconstructs the barrier found separating the average worker and an artist.
