Water Bully

Bully’s first album, ’Feels Like’ will cut you at volume. Album opener, ‘I Remember’ sets it out like so, with tight, dry drums, punk rock guitars, a mildly psychotic baseline and vocals that…female Kurt? All I can say, is that despite how long it took to finally get a copy into my eager, moist paws, I am very glad to have it with me now. It’s really personal and Alicia Bognanno gets real fast.

#CalendarDolls

The commercial calendar was originally a Victorian enterprise that Pirelli weaponised to maximum effect in the 1960s and ‘70s. Of course it’s true that attitudes have changed since then and that, for the most part, is a very good thing. However, these are the girls who adorned the walls of factories, offices, barracks, barber shops, garages and the inside of lorry cabs the world over and it is not entirely without merit.

A Penny Brew

Bitches Brew’ by Miles Davis is a crazed affair. It is the most acidic of jazz so that needs must be your bag before venturing in, as something with this much mood on LP is made for a very specific room. However, those who do shall be richly rewarded.

The Shadow Angelic

Sekiro is the kind of thing upon which dynasties are founded and I feel like FromSoftware are actually getting their talons into my weak, reluctant hide with this one, in a way that they did not with the Soulsborne games. Those were interactions wherein I was more the mouse than the cat and I crawled beneath a sofa the very second their attention was diverted.

Hind Quarters

When I asked him at what point the spectacle would conclude, Pat suggested that this might come to pass once all the horses are dead. I don’t really think he understands it either. Also, there are no skulls on this betting slip.
