Super Furry Animals are one of those bands I’ve been peripherally aware of for quite some time now, but I’d never realised just how many of their songs I knew and indeed loved. Well, not until I bought Songbook, which is billed as containing “All 21 Singles so far…”, and pretty much does what it says on the tin.
SFA are a Welsh band who have been known to record songs in Welsh (and there are one or two of those here), and have lots of attitude. In a good fun way, you understand. Their songs and artwork often seem on the Dagenham side of Barking, and having listened to this a few times, I’ll be getting hold of some of the albums to hear more.
Some of the more immediately appealing tracks are:
- Something 4 The Weekend, which may have one or two references to illict substances.
- The Man Don’t Give A F, err The man doesn’t seem to care much . Not the kind of thing your average radio station is likely to play too often, but a lot of fun
And, as they say, many more. Utterly bonkers, highly recommended.
 Well, on the sticker on the outside of the pop-up sleeve.
 Always a good start
 Old joke that I may never tire of
