Back to the Future


THIS week has seen me travelling back in time to an album that a few months ago I could not stop listening to.
Future Of The Left's debut LP Curses was released ingloriously at the tail end of 2007 to little fanfare - so ingloriously that it missed out on being in my albums of the year shortlist I draw up every year like a saddo - but it really deserves the attention and is again fuelling my ears on the drive to work.
The band, a Welsh supergroup made of former members of Mclusky and Jarcrew, have fused together metal, post-rock and punk riffing meatier than a pig eating steaks with some of the most surreal lyrics ever to be committed to record - anything from pretty pussies named Colin to elves eating sausage on a stick is fair game - and the results are insanely brilliant.
Check out the next single Manchasm, which hits the shelves on April 8.
