Stretch to the music!

So, 2008 was alright, well as alright as time can be really, even allowing for the extra second of it. What did you do with that second? Well, I back-combed my hair. I look great, thanks GMT.

Anyway, here is the first five songs I did like last year. I’m not saying they’re the best or part of some “cool” music mag’s top 9000 or whatever, but I did like them, I did, I did and if you disagree with me, I will throw poo at you.

  1. Skream – Hedd Banger
  2. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – Dig, Lazarus, Dig
  3. Selfish Cunt – England Made Me II
  4. Metallica – Cyanide
  5. Asian Dub Foundation – Burning Fence

This is actually called Hedd Banger (silly youtube children). Skream is a dubstep producer who is producing very interesting stuff and he’s only 21. How did I waste my life? I like the vid too…reminds me of home

People said this was a return to form for Nick Cave, but that’s only stupid people, because in the absence of an actual God figure, I have Nick. Jesus, people can be really stupid sometimes. Groove-laden loveliness

A man with a guitar, a man with a microphone and a drum machine…makes Selfish Cunt. They caused Joe Duffy to go weak at his hairy knees when they played here. At least they won’t be investigated by the cops like the Sex Pistols were. My major kudos goes to these guys for throwing horse-shit at Pete Doherty, the dirty little runt.

Metallica came back this year with a new album which kinda made me feel the way I felt when I was a kid. I was initially reticent, but the album won me over. This song is such a mess of a song that it works really well. They played a great gig In Dublin this summer too. Hopefully this year they’ll go back on the booze and go mental, so a new documentary can be made for my amusement.

ADF don’t actually have to release good music to make me happy, but they do it anyway. That’s pretty nice of them, innit. This song has the best chorus of last year and makes me wanna be Asian so I can join them. I tried already, but they laughed at my word-poetry.

Come back tomorrow for part 2. Please feel free to tell me your favourite songs so I can abuse you too.
