Just listened to this song on my walk back to work from lunch, gives you a bit of a swagger in your step!! Well, it did for me.

I give you... Let's Kill Music by The Cooper Temple Clause

The power of this is still palpable 29 years on. I was at this gig in 1978.

stuart braithwaite's evil obsession with ruining ears is not really captured here due to the compression, but still a great track (if you like your emo-without-words ;).



and what a fantastic speech:



"do you understand what i'm saying, sir?"

Lisa Loeb & Nine Stories - Stay (I Missed You)



It's all fairly straightforward until you get to

...some of us suffer but we're weeping for the other who was dying since the day they were born, well, well, this is not that, I feel like I'm throwing but I'm thrown...

A more recent band, one I like and have had the pleasure of 'meeting' when they were hammered in Glasgow (got a couple of pics of the lead singer looking proper ed!!). Was gutted that I didn't get to see them out here - they played Zurich the day I started work.

I give you The Wombats - Kill The Director
