From the liner notes: “In small towns, there are few forms of amusement. two prominent ones are easy sex and arson. When the more simple exercises lose their bang, new combinations develop. Any similarity between the rhythm patterns used and Led Zeppelin drumbeats is entirely appropriate."

Chequeless Reckless
by Fontaines DC
(58 plays) | (1 fan)

"I caught a young band called Fontaines D.C. They were perfect for that setting, a tiny rock club on the first floor of an old building in the middle of Dublin. It was a set of snarling, swaggering post-punk filtered through the retro-rock bands of the early ’00s; their frontman Grian Chatten, in particular, had the kind of DGAF aloofness we associate with bands in the latter category."

The video stars Dina, a spunky tortoiseshell kitten rescued from downtown LA, and a puppet-ized version of the west coast rapper (real name: Ian Matthias Bavitz). It's three-minutes of adorable, directed by Toben Seymour.: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7T_KKiQiolk

This Is The Sea
by The Waterboys
(140 plays) | (0 fans)

Lead singer Mike Scott wrote the song; he composed about 20 different verse lyrics, choosing the best five for the final product. Looking back on the song in 2017, Mike Scott isn't impressed. "Melodically, I think it's a very limiting song," he told Songfacts. "My abilities with melodies have improved a lot, have developed a lot since those days, and that song doesn't really make it for me."
