It's a bad month for novelty college bands of the 80's

First, Mojo Nixon announced his retirement, which is too bad.

Then today on KEXP's morning show, Jon announced that Dave Blood of the Dead Milkmen had killed himself.

Sure, they haven't been up too much since the mid 90s, but who can forget "Beach Party Vietnam" or "Bitchin' Camaro" or even the overplayed "Punk Rock Girl"? Their songs were juvenile and bordered on offensive, and that what always made me smile when I heard them (well, maybe not so much those last few albums, but you know what I mean).

Pour some bleach on the ground for a brutha in a dress...
