Sick City was something of a duet between Raymond Watts and JG Thirlwell, so that makes it a fairly honest contender for being the track most representative of what went in my ears last year. This is a slightly different version than the single version, which sells for eye-watering prices on ebay.
I love the song for its cheesily cheerful larceny of Holst’s Mars.
Since this is the last post in this series, I’ll throw in a couple of bonus songs – It Tolls For Thee (Pig Breath), which contains one of the most magical riffs ever
and Scumsberg, which was one of those songs that I just couldn’t live without. Plus the lyrics always make me giggle.
