Super Furry Animals : It’s Not The End Of The World?

They shot John Lennon for less...

A bit rubbish by their usual high standards, here’s single number three off ‘Rings Around The World’ and the straight-in-at-33 hits just keep on coming. Another New Year’s Day gone by and, as the Super Furries remind us, the global apocalypse has been postponed again. With a truly painful falsetto and a string section, Gruff Rhys is here to tell us all to “[I]Turn all the hate in the world into a mockingbird and make it fly away[/I]”. Christmas was two weeks ago, loser. They shot John Lennon for less.
