Super Furryism #10: The Boy With The Thorn In His Side/Radiator

For those who 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.

Somehow, it's been 20 years since the SFA record Radiator was released. I don't know where the time has gone, but I do know this record still sounds so very wonderful. To celebrate, the band is releasing all sorts of sonic goodies, including this not-all-that-often-heard "cover" of "The Boy With the Thorn in His Side." It's glitchy and jittery and silly, which makes this yet another wonderful piece of the SFA lexicon. Strangers to Super Furry Animals should definitely give this one a listen (and by this one I mean the entire record, along with the cover).
