Super Furryism #1

For those that don't know, this blog borrows its' name from the title of the debut long player record by wily Welsh cosmic psych poppers Super Furry Animals. As far as I'm concerned, that's certainly reason enough to start talking about them at random times, and for no real reason other than just because I darned well feel like it.

In addition to releasing copious quality records, the Super Furries have put out several ridiculously, rampantly good b-sides. One of my favorites has always been the rather ribald "The Man Don't Give a Fuck," which at one point (perhaps it still does) held the record for the usage of the word "fuck" in a song. Yes, it's a smidge vulgar. Yes, it's on the not so safe for work (unless you work somewhere incredibly awesome). And yes, it's all sorts of great. The jarring space jangle and the smoky purr (and howl) of Gruff Rhys leave no doubt who's behind the song. And now, hows about several video renditions for your viewing and listening pleasure? You're so very welcome.
