Have... itch. Must... scratch.

Last night, following a rather good episode of Skins, I tweeted:

"What was the tune at the end of Skins tonight (before Uptown Top Ranking). I'm sure it was Low... help?!"

No-one helped. Not a single one of you. So tonight, I had absolutely no choice. I had to sit and listen to 30 seconds of ever Low track in my possession. This isn't such a bad thing as I'm quite fond of the band, though it was still something of a labour intensive exercise. And as it goes, seeing as I wasn't scanning through all the albums in chronological order or anything, it cropped up towards the end of the session, as the first track on "Things we lost in the fire". I should have instantly recognised it, but hey, I'm having some memory issues at the moment.

MP3 Low - Sunflower

    I'll be honest, I'd never heard any of Low's stuff until Skins last Monday (great episode btw), and now I'm the proud owner of a couple of their albums, that song had me on a frantic search to find out who it was!

    Good stuff, they're ace. 'The Great Destroyer' is my favourite, though 'Things we lost in the fire' is a very close second. I wasn't much of a fan of 'Drums and Guns', though I guess you can only go with the slowcore sound for so long.
