johnny_cabbage Cathal Coughlan is a fucking genius. The world needs more people like him. Been listening since the days of We Hate You South African Bastards and he hasn't disappointed me yet. Not once. Favorite track: Let's Flood The Fairground.

mphelm Cathal Coughlan has a voice; and by that I mean not just the voice that he sings with (which has bewitched me since the first time I heard the title track to "Valhalla Avenue" and sounds as strong as ever almost 40 years after Microdisney hit the racks) but also an outlook that has informed everything he's ever recorded. Favorite track: Song Of Co-Aklan.

Hamster live stream of the high definition Boil hamster quite soon for a feast during bombs Deep-frying some shelves, updating their profile Dig tunnel by night to places of safety We’ll make a video call when ceilings are falling Paris still in India, Narendra fixed it for me All alone, we have time, vacuum food for TV tell me when, tell me when, tell me when Raise your hands if you don’t know what you mean, Emotional fixes, cadavers in ditches Feast your eyes where your money goes to die Feeling affronted? Blame the unwanted An Executive Race, expert in an instant, Short cut to the chase for a screen-reading ace Tie-lines from Lockerbie Moor to Lower Manhattan ’til we sink below the waves of very black moustaches Homeless in gainful employ, losers lost to the shore, DNA on parade for the rage Raise your hands, form a continental wave Turn on the hysterics for old men without merit Make walls rise where your money goes to die and when you’re prompted, blame the unwanted One lunatic, acting alone, one lunatic, loving his home one lunatic’s Paypal insights, I can’t tell you the price, just an antique device Bob Nairac’s home from the hill, Bob Nairac’s issued a bill His leadership mustn’t be spurned, he was burned but not turned That city is gone, just rubble and sunshine Space-time is retooled, six governments rule We’ll make a video call for buttocks of botox We’re an excavation all done, Ohio fixed it for me All alone, we have time, jammy smears on TV, set against the defence of Koblenz Raise your hands if you don’t know what this means, no silicon fixes, just Kitchener’s britches Feast your eyes, seems the robots up and died Feeling affronted? Come on, blame the unwanted
