Sure Shot

Beastie Boys

Good Evening AF Gang, greetings from the Murderati Admins here at Murderati Towers!
We are all currently adhering to social distancing, so the boys are currently down in the basement fine tuning album No2. And us Admins sit around a large wooden dining table, like some modern day gothic Waltons (One for the kids there!).
We have been discussing our 10 songs for today’s Kinky Linky takeover, there were arguments over who would choose a Crows track, but Lisa won that one as she promised not to tell her Kurt Cobain story ever again!! We have all chosen 2 tracks which is handy as that gives us 10 in total, some obvious, some maybe not so obvious.
So without further ado, here is the Murderati Kinky Linky, enjoy . .

Mark – Beastie Boys ‘Sure Shot’ – I honestly believe this band to be so underrated, and yet to me they are one of the greatest bands of all time. Talented, funny but socially aware when they needed to be.

We Float

PJ Harvey

Mark – PJ Harvey ‘We Float’ – Always one to be late to a party, I had never really listened to the beautiful PJ before. The lovely Kaz pointed me to this track and the rest is history. Love PJ and this track is one of my favourite songs of all time.

Alternative Facts

Mush

Charles – Mush ‘Alternative Facts’ – I love this track because it overstays it’s welcome and yet doesn’t, becomes boring but isn’t, and stops when it shouldn’t!

First Light // False Face

Crows

Lisa – Crows ‘First Light//False Face’ - From my favourite album of last year. Such an underrated song. The way it slowly grows, then becomes so powerful is just perfect.

Ejector Seat

Knuckle

Andy – Knuckle ‘Ejector Seat’- Great local band, special song to me as daughter no2 wasn't a very happy baby in the early days, not much was able to quieten her down, then we discovered this song played on my phone had some strange calming effect on her.

Somewhat Damaged

Nine Inch Nails

Kaz – Nine Inch Nails ‘Somewhat Damaged’ - Layer upon layer of dark aggressive noises - what a way to open an album. Must be enjoyed at ear splitting volume (Mark – another band that the wonderful Kaz has pointed me too)
