Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.41)

Retribution Gospel Choir, the rockier side project of Low’s Alan Sparhawk kicks off Vol41 in style, leading abruptly into the witty electro pop of John Grant. The Bluetones’ tune is a personal favourite, mainly due to the memories tied to it but also the line “When I am sad and weary, When all my hope is gone, I walk around my house and think of you with nothing on” which I only found out later was paraphrased from a poem (“Celia, Celia” by Adrian Mitchell). 

Honourable mentions also to the rather good cover of Psycho Killer, the classic tune by The The, a bit of new age cheesiness with Dreadzone, and a great track by The Secret Machines. Listen below.
