Ariel Pink shows his Pom Pom at the Regent Theater (and then some)

Upon entering the Regent a voice on the PA is chanting, “Only men fall in love. Only men fall in love…” This obscure piece of new wave seemed fitting for a pre-Pink playlist; an esoteric Home Services track off of a 1981 single complete with phallical imagery and a strange, hypnotic, male-centric refrain that skirts […]
