Be honest, which of these musical concepts sounds the best:
a) Badger Disco
b) Monkey Jazz
c) An album exploring the facts and folklore of witches and their craft?
Personally, it’s Badger Disco for me every time, but I’d be wrong. The right choice would actually be 'c'.
‘There’s Always Room On The Broom’ by Liars is a killer single, but what the hell were they thinking when they came up with the idea? More to the point, what exactly were they taking? Did someone sit there and say, “Hey guys, I think we should have more snare drum in the mix,” before the reply came from a man stood in the corner, dressed in a pointy hat and straddling a broom who calmly suggested, “Sure, but shall we add a couple of lines in the chorus about boiling toads feet in cauldrons to really get the dance-floor going?”
It seems truly unfathomable that a track just as much under the influence of Squarepusher and Grotbags as Gang of Four and The Raincoats is a prime slice of punk-funk, but prime slice it is. Go swallow it whole.
