Super Furryism #4

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.

Sometimes, a gal just needs a groove. Ladies, you know what I'm talkin' about. And the Super Furries are happy to do just that. Today's subject matter, the song "Ice Hockey Hair," features one heck of a kicky little groove. It also, like many SFA songs, has some serious sonic split personalities going on, pinging from the aforementioned groove to scuzzed out fuzzery, to a little bit of doowop. And wouldn't you know it, that's a big part of what makes this song, from the Ice Hockey Hair EP, so darned wonderful. Also adding to the awesomeness? Lyrics like "phone me/page me/fax me til I'm silly." Never fails to make me smile, that one. The rest of the four song EP is pretty great as well, so make sure to add this gem to your collection.
