Captain Sensible – Wot. From the year 1982.
Unfortunately, they don’t make ‘m like this anymore nowadays.
Legendary graffiti king Futura 2000 once recorded a track together with The Clash, called The Escapades of Futura 2000, with other hip hop graffiti legends Fab Five Freddy and Dondi White as back up vocals.
He really is rapping off beat and the lyrics were also not the best in the world, but this song had something special about it: it triggered punk, ska, reggae, funk, hiphop and disco producers and bands like The Beastie Boys, Gang Of Four, Rip Rig Panic, The Slits, Bush Tetras, Liquid Liquid PIL and even Talking Heads to cross over more. So I consider myself lucky to have this track on vinyl.
I am so fixated by this track at the moment that I just have to call it my new best track ever. Not that I’m feeling like killing somebody, but it gives me that ‘healthy aggression’, one needs once in a while.
Die You Fuck by Brainbombs, Swedish punkrockers from the eighties, although it really sounds like it could be be made tomorrow.
Btw, the guy on the cover is Ed Gein, a not so friendly man, although huge inspiration for a lot of movie directors.
Best track ever part 26 was to honor my father. This one’s for my dear mother.
Loooooong before Peter Jackson’s blockbuster, there was only the book. Ànd there was an LP with music to that book. My mom always played that album, which hypnotized me every time I heard it. I remember my mom telling me about the story and Tolkien in a way an 11 year old boy could understand.
Sweet memories those are.
To honor my beloved father, who let me listen to this when I was still a kid, I’ll make this sublime piece of jazz by John Coltrane my new best track ever.
I’m still ‘borrowing’ his original vinyl copy and I know he knows that I do not take care of stuff that well… so if you read this dad: don’t worry, I treat this one with all the love I have.
