An Early And Somewhat Dismissive Clue to the New Direction

From 1969, please enjoy post-hippie wiseguy Dan Hicks (along with His Hot Licks) and his old-timey kiss-off classic "How Can I Miss You When You Won't Go Away?"

To be honest, I was never much of a Hicks fan -- gimme his original band, The Charlatans, any day -- but this song tickles me none the less. And if you're interested, you can download the entire album this is from, free and quite above board, over here.

In any case, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded the first reader sensitive enough to glean the clip's relevance to the theme of tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.
