Released: April 2007

Hopefully people won’t want to kill us” - the words of Yannis Philippakis, contrary-bastard-in-chief of Foals, breaking the news that their most beloved early track wouldn't get near their debut album. At the time, it seemed foolish. In hindsight, it was shrewd. While it might sit awkwardly in Foals' cannon (imagine the surly buggers letting one of their tunes be used on Skins now), 'Hummer' is a relentless and joyous reminder that while their output may dally in the realms of serious-face, they're only a glitchy riff away from pop perfection. (MW)
