Released: July 2003

Super Furry Animals' greatest song amalgamated all their biggest strengths (slow but anthemic melodies, fist-punch choruses and techno bleep-outs) into a seven-minute wonder vastly more magic than the sum of its parts. Cian Ciaran, the dance expert in the band, built a pupil-dilating intro that built until – when played live – the band would cut in with the instruments, anthemic harmonica heralding a career peak for one of the UK's most special, genre-shoving bands. The song ended their 'Phantom Power' album and was only released as a download EP track, making it an under-appreciated gem – if still the hands-round-yer-mates'-shoulders moment of any SFA set.
