An Early (And Possibly Confused) Clue to the New Direction

From 2007 and the generally engrossing soundtrack album for writer/director Todd Haynes' I'm Not There (the IMHO brilliant meditation on all things Bob Dylan) please enjoy Pavement frontman Stephen Malkmus and a really cool cover of Dylan's counter-cultural classic "Ballad of a Thin Man."

If memory serves, that's Tom Verlaine on one of the guitars, BTW.

In any case, as always, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded to the first reader who gleans the clip's relationship to the theme of tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.
