He won’t fuck you over. He’s Mr. November. You at the back, stop pulling that face.

The National, they make grown up music, just when I’d lost faith someone could. Alligator is my pick of their albums, I know Boxer gets the love, it’s a pretty special album, but Alligator is a classic.

Is seven ‘the’ tune on here?

TRACK SEVEN: Friend Of Mine

I’m to say no, for me there’s Daughters Of The Soho Riots, Mr. November, All The Wine, Lit up…

Ah f**k it. this is a stupid post, there’s not a bad track on Alligator. Skip where you like.

If you must smoke, be safe. Wear a crash helmet.

I’m a big Tricky fan, and Mixed Race is up there for me with the best stuff he’s done, if he lost a bit of form, this was a return. But what’s the standout track? It was the first single off the album and it is…

TRACK SEVEN: Murder Weapon

We have a winner, OK it’s a little gimmicky using Peter Gunn Theme sample and for some reason the My Way bit at the start grates on me a little, but Tricky pulls it off. What a tune.

Come on… Shine you gun!

TRACK SEVEN IS  A WINNER.

Have you seen Stevie’s new car? No? It’s nice, a blue one, goes dead fast.

I’m going to cut to the chase.

No.

TRACK SEVEN: Big Brother

I have to declare that I Believe (When I Fall In Love It Will Be Forever) is one of my favourite Stevie Wonder songs (along with He’s Mistra Know it All) and Track Seven here is up against that and Superstition and even though fat lasses in mini skirts at 70’s nights have tarnished that a little it’s still a tune. Nope old Number Seven here stood no chance, in fact I doubt it even bothered showing up, just went home and had a little cry.

TRACK SEVEN IS  NOT A WINNER.

Who cares about Track Seven – they had a Tank!

Every time I go back and listen to the Super Furry Animals I just end up thinking there weren’t many bands like them. They just made crazy, brilliant music that sounded like nothing else, admittedly sometimes it was in welsh so that would explain why.

But what about Radiator? Is Track Seven a work of welsh wizardry? I’m pleased to say yes! or oes! if you’d like it in Welsh.

TRACK SEVEN: Play It Cool

But wait. Hermann loves Pauline and Pauline loves Hermann. They made love and gave birth to a little German.

Hermann ♥’s Pauline  has it.

TRACK SEVEN IS  NOT A WINNER.

For the tank alone, SFA I salute you!

Jason’s collection of hangers was second to none, except Mr. L Jenkins of Swindon who has 11 more.

Now most people where probably heading down to the 24 hour garage for a Mars Bar by the time track seven of  Spiritualized masterpiece came round. But did they miss the best bit?

One word answer. No.

TRACK SEVEN: Home Of The Brave

While you were looking for you Rizzlas you’d of missed this. And you wouldn’t of been missing much. Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space, Come Together, Electricity all blinding.

And the over sized pill packaging still one of the greatest of all time, I remember carefully cutting it open to get the CD and feeling slightly guilty about doing so.

TRACK SEVEN IS NOT A WINNER.

Alexis you do the hair thing, er Derek you look angry. Good Boy.

Sleigh Bells, Hippster nonsense or a treat (1) for the ears. I’d go a bit of both if I’m honest, but I did enjoy this album.

But what if I stumbled into track seven? Would I be in for a treat (2)

TRACK SEVEN: Rill Rill

Featuring a sample fro Can You Get To That by Funkadelic, is indeed a treat (3) I do like Infinity Guitars and Crown On The Ground because they are nice ‘n’ noisy but Rill Rill is  a bit of a stand out track.

Go on, treat (4) yourself.

TRACK SEVEN IS A  WINNER TREAT (5)

They’ve been slicing up eyeballs, what fun.

Now I arrived late at the Pixies, and when I did Kim Deal was looking very Mumsy, shame. My mate Chris still would though.

I did do my fare share of singing along to Debaser, Wave of Mutilation and Here Comes Your Man, have to confess I did change one of the lines to ‘outside there’s a small boy w**king’ on that one.

But where are these tracks on Death to the Pixies?

Not at number seven that’s where

TRACK SEVEN: Dig for Fire

Debaser at five, Wave Of Mutilation at six. So close, but so, so  far. Dig for Fire is good, but just not good enough.

Little sad face made of punctuation.

TRACK SEVEN IS ALAS, NOT A WINNER.
