There are so many songs you would play on your iPod dock as you tagged a wall in a midnight street. A bit of Rage Against The Machine, some Prince, a few Beatles tracks and maybe a little Bob Dylan.
But is there a song which embodies the street art mood? Decayed spaces, vandalism, blotched denim, countercultural zest, rebellion.
I think Crystal Castles comes pretty close with 'Doe Deer', off their second self-titled album. So distorted, yet melodious.
