Pillar of the Community? - certainly not!

I got called a pillar of the community recently, in jest it must be said, and my mind sent the word, & phrases that use it, round n round (as it does...) & led initially to this fine track by the Thermals from 2006. Likely you know it already - but what the hell?, it's a cracker.

Much less popular, but very good indeed, is this one - mentioned on Wolves, Hawks and Kites last year. Quite some contrast in style between the Thermals & Construction and Destruction; I find the two go together very well.

Obscure musical fact #8704 - Pillars of the Community was the title of a 2007 album by The Good Time Charlies.
