I’m still resisting the temptation to look at Roy’s predictions of my Top 4, but I suspect he got this one at least half right. Up until the Autumn this would have been ‘Distant Past’, but ‘No Reptiles’ is now my favourite track on the album and has indeed been released as a ‘single’ now, so under the Mouldycliff (one track per artist) it usurps ‘Distant Past’ and receives my Bronze Medal for 2015.
This may not be a surprise to Andy, not only is he seemingly now part of the band’s entourage, this track is also a particular favourite of the next Mouldyclff generation. From one of the best albums of the year, both musically and lyrically, this is a mesmeric live performance of ‘No Reptiles’
‘I’m going to kill a stranger/ So don’t you be a stranger/ oh baby it’s alright/it’s alright to feel like a fat child in a pushchair”
