The Louder Than War Playlist
Each week we present ”ËSix Of The Best’ ”â the six tracks that are getting our feet tapping here at LTW Towers”Â¦ They can be brand new, they can be old ”â either way they are vying for space on the stereo!!
Playlist W/C 23rd May 2011
Adam & The Ants ”ËWhip In My Valise’ ”â The first dates are under his belt, the doubters have been proved woefully wrong”Â¦ We could have picked any track from his current live set; it’s all good, but in the end settled for this one. It’s even more of a shame he isn’t going to close The Rebellion Festival on this evidence.
Buzzcocks ”Ë Orgasm Addict’ ”â Having spent the weekend at the first Friends Of Mine Festival just south of Manchester, had to include a few of the bands who played. Hampered by a howling gale, but despite that still demonstrated how to entertain a crowd.
Goldblade ”ËJukebox Generation’ ”â Having just returned from a US tour the LTW boss and co. played Friends Of Mine on the Friday night. Am hearing rumours of a new album on the way”Â¦
The Longcut ”ËOpen Hearts’ ”â Manchester experimentalists; this was the title track from their 2009 album released by Deltasonic. Look out for a forthcoming LTW interview
The Wedding Present ”Ë Brassneck’ ”â Who’s idea was it to put The Weddo’s and Buzzcocks on at the same time at FOM Fest; fool!! Interesting acoustic version of this classic first broadcast live on a NY radio station.
Air Cav ”ËEmbers’ ”â Played the tiny ”ËLake Bar’ at FOM Fest on Saturday afternoon. ”ËEmbers’ was released as a single in 2008 via Surbia Records. Look out for a forthcoming LTW interview.
