The Cribs

I'm A Realist

The Cribs Pic: Tom Oxley
Probably a rare moment in a Cribs show, you can more or less guarantee this is three or so minutes in which you won’t get the foot of one of the Jarman brothers in your face. ‘I’m A Realist’, you see, is something of an interlude in the Cribs catalogue; not a slowie, exactly, but one where the pulse slows from a race into more of a saunter, guitars chime and trill instead of charging around and Ryan and Gary chorus “I’m an indecisive piece of shit”. If you still want blood, meanwhile, there’s a video where — spoiler alert! — a girl gets killed by a flowerpot while having a bath. Not seen that one before.
