The Cribs

by Simon

You’re Gonna Lose Us.   I can remember the first time I heard this, I thought it was a real mess, but there was this energy spilling over.  And like one of those magic pictures the real shape of it appeared right in front of me.

If you ever dreamt of a collaboration between The Fall and Dexys this is it.  Great lyrics (when I’m drunk I can be an asshole – that’s the chorus…) and that energy, it’s just on fire.

Possibly my favourite single of the past ten years.
