Stiff Little Fingers – Wasted Life
Always a favourite, but always a warning sign when it becomes the ‘go to’
Blackpink – How you like that
I’ve side stepped K-pop for about two years; but track one of the first album I pick and I’m totally hooked. Genius.
Stone Temple Pilots – Crackerman
A day I should have wanted to burn the house down, but didn’t want to, had me concerned about how apathetic i’m becoming. A random play of Crackerman put an end to that pretty quickly…
Reigning Sound – A little more time
Maybe the best pop song I’ve heard this year – 60’s bar pop in the style of Dr Feelgood – utterly ridicoulous.
Wolf Alice – St Purple and Green
I think I love this almost as I love Only Shallow…
My Bloody Valentine – Only Shallow
The greatest Shoe-gazer of all time. Flawless. Beyond Flawless. Dreamy. Beyond dreams. The black-hole of flawslessness – the quantuum computing of dreams.
Wyldest – Beggar
And when you talk of dreams and shoegazing – look what lovely pop manifests…
Bee Gees- Love So Right
Fair play to Rick Rubin for pulling this weapon out of the bag on his recent interview with Barry Gibb – what a lovely chorus.
Temptation Eyes – Grass Roots
Hang around the Replacements all your life and they’ll still lead you to hidden treasures…
Replacements – I’ll be you
Speaking of which… is Paul’s last howl on the final chorus as good/better/not as good as Daltery’s howl on Won’t get fooled again? Don’t they say all that needs to be said about boredom, angst, annoyance and frustration!?
Tears for Fears – Head over Heels
The first ever 7″ I asked for was Everybody wants to rule the world – the Fears always making the list for my favourite pop stars. I fucking love Head over Heels… as well as all of the Primal Scream references in their work. funny how time flies
