Sawdust Songs of the Plaid Bartenders

"Sawdust Songs of the Plaid Bartenders" is a lyric from the song "Hotwax," which was on Beck's 1996 album Odelay. I've just...always loved it. It was between this and another lyric "Chain Smoke Kansas Flashdance Ass Pants", but I'll save that one for later. 

So I'm envisioning "Sawdust Songs of the Plaid Bartenders" as a collage of different typographical styles, just like the sonic collage of Beck's lyrics and his various musical influences. The obvious application would be an album cover, but it might become an event poster or a sign advertising a local honkytonk bar. I'm sure it will evolve into something really classy. Pretty stoked about this project!
