The Mountain Goats 'New Chevrolet In Flames'

This is a b-side to 'See America Right', and it features yer man from ILX delivering another lyrics heavy track, with the musical accompaniment having an almost bar band quality in its retro basicness. I'm not sure that I really get The Mountain Goats… can someone explain them to me?

I don't see why they are so popular. Clever lyrics does not make a band.

I heard something about how all their songs are in some way part of some enormous song cycle. Or something. Maybe people like that.
