Posted slightly later than normal due to Jose’s sacking today. Many theories abound, but I guess we may never really know ‘What Went Down’.
My Twenty this year has had a strange shape to it, in so far as when I sat down to think about it I had six tracks that were first choices for the team sheet, and then a much wider squad of around 40 from which to pick the other 16. That is no reflection on the 16 so far, it has been another really good year, but it has been a while since a select group of tracks were so far ahead of the rest. So with today we embark on these six. Any of them could have been my Number One in some other year, so don’t read too much into the order. However there has to be a number six, so here, with another thrilling live performance of What Went Down are Foals. Already nominated by Roy as his number 11, this is from a Radio 1 session at Maida Vale. The atmosphere is fantastic, kudos to the film crew.
