Can't Get You Out Of My Head
The Subways - Alright.
Been earworming this all day. Sitting in the office, walking round Oxford Street on my lunch hour, sitting outside the pub in the sun after work... At last I get home and I can listen to the actual record over and over.
#44 with a bullet. Pure sublime punk pop perfection and hardly anyone heard it or bought it. In a world of flipchart landfill indie shite clogging up the charts, that sucks. But it's simply wonderful. An energetic explosion of fateful longing and tragic romance. The beauty is in it's simplicity, the guitars that both crunch and jangle, the pure ecstacy of the middle 8, the contrast of Billy's yearning lead and Charlotte's sugarsweet backing vocals.
I can't wait to see them surrounded by likeminded fans at Reading. Only 2 weeks away now. Whup!
