LIST 26 - 13/11/09

Neither "Relax" nor "Two Tribes" was the most controversial singles of 1983-4, however much their creators may like to think otherwise. Shockheaded Peters' disarming swing-meets-post-punk paean to paid-for gay sex, "I, Bloodbrother Be", knocks allcomers out of the park, and it's a pleasure to be able to include this exceptional piece of work in a That Music List list.

Other tracks from way back in the day include just about my favourite instrumental opener to an album ever, so it would have been most inappropriate not to accord "Arrogance Gave Him Up" the same position here. There's also a then and now of Groove Armada, some cut and paste hilarity from Cassetteboy, the young British one-woman answer to Doo Rag, what Little Boots did before Little Boots (see if you can spot her), and the return of everyone's favourite ex-hobo.
