GREY HAIRS – Lucky 7

“Often when we get obsessed by a song we’ll try and play it in order to somehow exorcise it – we did it in the past with Harry Nilsson and Roky Erickson – and we have a version of this that will see the light of day at some point. But there’s a mysterious extra element at work here – you can hear what every part of the puzzle is doing but together they make something else, a sonic ghost buried in the recording that elevates the whole and makes it impossible to replicate.”

MARK EMMERSON of THE LUCID DREAM – Song For Ewe

“I discovered this track a few months ago via a mix by Andrew Weatherall at The Hacienda in 1993, which my brother put me onto. Andrew is without doubt in the top influences upon The Lucid Dream, just about everything that he DJ’s tends to be excellent, and we were acting like FA Cup winners when Andrew played our track (‘SX1000’) on his NTS radio show last month.”

AUBREY HORNOR from LITHICS – Song For Ewe

“This song also has my all-time favorite scream. It’s so loud and inappropriate, makes me laugh every time I hear it, it’s so good! My band mate Bob thinks this scream may be second only to Iggy Pop’s weird inverted, coughing scream in the middle of “T.V. Eye”, so it’s a very highly rated scream among members of Lithics.”

TABLE SCRAPS – Lucky 7

“We’d intended to shoot this video before playing a show in Brighton in the evening and adding fake vomit in post but we didn’t get there early enough. We played the show, stayed up all night and then staggered to the pier at 10am. (Un)fortunately this meant that no acting was required to fulfil the “worst day ever at the fairground” brief.”

DYLAN HUNDLEY of LULU LEWIS – Song For Ewe

“Listen to the Sirens” by Tubeway Army (which later became just Gary Numan) is top choice. This song!!!! It hits everything for me. It’s synth, it’s rock, it’s primal, it’s slick and rough. Total perfection of its era and the Eno, Roxy Music influences are so well carried on to a new place. It goes into my top 20 of all time ever for sure. It’s also extra cool that Gary Numan is top of the charts in Great Britain right now! Very glad that this music is still alive and loved.”
