  1. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard

    Tbh I wouldn't even consider it a stand out track on FMB.
  2. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard

    I mean, I suppose that's what Gumboot Soup is, but with most of the other projects the individual tracks are all doing something within the sequence of the album that's lost when you rip them out of it. The benefit of the 5-albums thing was the ability to really commit to the album as a format rather than just to put out lots of songs.
  3. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard

    It's not really possible to make a coherent album from them because, one, these are all very different projects, and two, they're recorded so that tracks are sequenced to lead in to each other - especially in the case of the best one, Polygondwanaland, whose tracks other than Crumbling Castle don't really work out of context. That aside if I were to try (not thinking about this too much) I'd do something like Crumbling Castle Nuclear Fusion The Lord of Lightning Muddy Water Countdown I'm Sleepin' In Tezeta Loyalty Digital Black The Fourth Colour So no, no Rattlesnake - it's grown on me but it's still something I enjoy as a bit of a laugh rather than being a really good song.
  4. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    I'll be at that Bristol date I reckon. They were shockingly excellent at End of the Road so I'm well up for seeing them again.

    Another bloody banger from Ezra Furman, whose next album is due in less than a month - alongside Titus that's definitely my most anticipated of the year. This is a bombastic pop track to open the album, with a great mix of electronics and the rock n roll we expect from him driving it forward. This one will be GOOD.
  6. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Tbf I imagine in places they're doing it like Stroud and Stockton on Tees it's probably the most exciting thing to happen all year.
  7. Album of the Year 2017

    I'd barely listed to them at that point. I was planning on checking them out cos there wasn't anything on I was fussed about. Then speculating that waiting after for a hypothetical secret set may get dull. They're not one of the great acts I was referring to.
  8. Album of the Year 2017

    Nah the other four are the great acts in this context stop twisting my words you turd
  9. Album of the Year 2017

  10. Album of the Year 2017

    Is this a new in joke I don't get yet

    I wasn't quite convinced until I read the big long interview about it on their site which was descriptions of a few of the tracks. It's gonna be sick, have faith my dude. And I suppose this is absolutely the logical direction to go in after something like TMLT.

    Well fuck me I wasn't prepared for this morning or this year to see the return of Titus Andronicus - but here we are! 'A Productive Cough' out 2nd March 1. Number One (In New York) 2. Real Talk 3. Above the Bodega (Local Business) 4. Crass Tattoo 5. (I'm) Like a Rolling Stone 6. Home Alone 7. Mass Transit Madness (Goin' Loco') Tracklist just a little shorter than the last one then. I'm sure the album's going to be bloody fantastic, and that big long opening track if proof enough of that, but I can't help being a little sat about the promised total lack of punk bangers. We're very much in 'To Old Friends and New' or 'No Future Pt 1' territory here. The decision to tour as an acoustic 2-piece is also a bit eyebrow raising but here's hoping they're bored of that by the time they come around here. Shot right to the top of my anticipated albums for this year anyway.
  13. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard

    actually it's this Poylgondwanaland Sketches of Brunswick East Gumboot Soup Flying Microtonal Banana Murder of the Universe
  14. Album of the Year 2017
