Animal

Captain

What a sense of adventure. ‘Animal’ starts with a church organ riff, goes a bit Babylon Zoo for 10 seconds, then morphs into a Suede-like stomp where singer Rik Flynn snarls, “You’re breaking down and lashing out”. Nice. Then, it does it all over again, building to an epic climax. All in all, six minutes wonderfully spent. Better still, it comes in limited-edition vinyl, which will make you want to swap that iPhone you got for Xmas for a Dansette instead.
