hoover dam

Saw a bit of a doco on Hoover Dam on TV (nice to watch something that doesn't end in a medal ceremony ...) and it reminded me a song by Sugar from a few years back. 
They were Bob Mould's band after Hüsker Dü wrapped up in the late 80's.

I dig the keyboard hook- a hint of Euro Glam Metal stirred into the indie sound.
The video's by Zissy (thank you) - some roadside handheld, but a good look at a terrifyingly big imposition on a valley. 

Can't help but admire the architecture and engineering, but it's another fine example of how we humans treat the host planet ...
