titus andronicus – i tried to quit smoking (live)

patrick stickles, the frontman of new jersey band titus andronicus, takes up his guitar and harmonica for this rendition of local business cut “i tried to quit smoking” – coming across like a stoic polemic that’s a lot closer to bruce springsteen’s nebraska than I thought would be possible, a comparison even more complicit when stickle’s sings of killing ronald reagan.
