The Louder Than War Playlist
Each week we present ‘Six Of The Best’ – the six tracks that are getting our feet tapping here at LTW Towers… They can be brand new, they can be old – either way they are vying for space on the stereo!!
Week commencing; 9th May 2011
Sorry Kisses ”ËSunstorms’- Taken from the bands 3rd album ”ËKeep Smiling’ (Desert Mile) The Kisses turn up the noise but keep the quiet!!
African Head Charge ”ËStoned Age Man’ ”â The return of both On-U Sound Records and the mighty Headcharge with their ever eclectic psychedelic dub.ÃÂ ”ËStoned Age Man’ features on the new ”ËVoodoo Of The Godsent’ CD and is a chill out bubbler with unintelligible tribal call lyrics ”â bliss.
Eureka Machines ”ËChampion The Underdog’ ”â Title track of the Leeds outfits 2nd album released on Wrath Records. Instantly lovable, massive chorus, insanely catchy “Dibnah”Â¦. FRED!”Â On tour now, not to be missed.
Poly Styrene ”ËKitsch’ – Taken from the solo album ”ËGeneration Indigo’ (Future Music) ”â A huge return to form from the very sadly departed Poly ”â The entire album is genius, it challenges musically, lyrically; nothing is as you might expect.
Pains of Being Pure At Heart ‘Too Tough’ – Featured on the 2nd album from these New Yorkers obsessed with the UK music scene circa 1994, soft gentle almost vulnerable vocals compete with a sonic onslaught.
Crass ‘Shaved Women’ – LTW boss John Robb is currently touring the USA with Steve Ignorant, so we had to include a Crass track “Screaming babies, screaming babies, screaming babies”
