At the Drive In – Invalid Litter Dept.

As soon as I started reading Melissa Wright’s “From Protest to Politics: Sex Work, Women’s Worth, and Ciudad Juarez Modernity” my mind went to this song.

Though the band doesn’t take an anthropological approach with the song I feel like the symbolism inherent in the video, lyrics, and music’s character very powerfully creates a sense of the situation in Ciudad Jaurez.  I think the bridge with the cross mentioned in the article is briefly shown in the video.

Lyrics here.
