ATHLETE – SINGLES 01-10

27 Sep

My copy of Athlete’s singles album (signed) arrived in the postbox today. Owning there albums already the feature I was looking forward to most was the previously unreleased ‘Back Track’ and the compilation of B-sides and rarities on the second disk (if you want this you need to buy the album with the yellow cover, the red one is just the singles). Back Track is a gem, catchy as jam containers are to wasps, i defy you to listen and not be der dup ing around the house for the rest of the day. I can’t believe it’s been 9 years since I was first invited along to see them play in Depford. They might not be the most trendy band around in these days of instant downloadable singles but they do know how to write an album, something of a hidden art these days.
