A swaggering beast of a track

This song gets a mention because it inspired Tom Robinson thus:

Scifi bleeps, tortured electric guitar moans, and a needy croaky vocal dripping with pent-up desire.

An irresistible rolling, mid-tempo groove propelled by spangly acoustic guitar lines and a motoring bass.

Oh and an arrangement that grows, swerves, develops and keeps the sonic surprises coming – while conforming to the old punk rock adage: three chords good, two chords better, one chord best of all.

This is a swaggering beast of a track that worms its way between your ears and refuses to come back out again.

Tom Robinson – as in the creative brain and driving force behind the 6-Music Introducing Mixtape. Tom goes on to explain that this is an acoustic remix of a song that he subsequently looked up on youtube. However this version is as different as it could be from the original
