Below the words: no, not Mogwai’s ‘George Square Thatcher Death Party‘. As I type this waffle, there’s a half-written Significant Albums of 2005 piece I should probably be finishing off. And whilst the pull of further procrastination is a strong one (not to mention the vacuuming I promised to do, or the garbage that needs taken out), I’d best buckle down like the precious little hack I always wanted to be when I was little.
So whilst I struggle to think up strained similes to describe a Sigur Rós record, I recommend a listen to ‘On The Night Of The Bonfire’ (YouTube version = here if you’re reading this on a mobile device). Not because I’m bitter about failing to make Gnomegame – the lovely Fence Records Fife micro-festival – this year. Or hacked off because I’ll be otherwise engaged when he plays Glasgow later this week. Rather, there may be a few, Kenny Anderson-related sentences thrown about in the next piece that will be appearing on this site. As besides, King Creosote rarely isn’t close at thought.
From last year’s excellent It Turned Out For The Best EP – of which you’re an arse if you don’t own.
