King Of The Slums

February 24th, 2009 | music

I haven’t thought about this band in years, but they suddenly popped into my head for no good reason this morning. A mate of mine had everything they did — discovered them because he really liked the song titles while browsing in a record shop, as I recall. And the first song that popped up on a wide YouTube search was the title I remember liking the best: "Fanciable Headcase." Which is associated in my head with all night drinking sessions at said mate’s place, and his worrying habit of using cheap lager as deodorant/cologne the morning after.

I am going to investigate this new album of theirs at some point.
