Super Furry Animals

Just thought I’d mention that the 20th Anniversary vinyl of rings around the world is available for pre order from normans, Piccadilly etc.
Also a 3 cd set with lots of bonus tracks is available for pre order.

Those B sides are as good as anything on the album

Shame - looks like it’s just a standard 2xLP without any of the bells and whistles that the original had then? Makes financial sense I guess , although I’m positive that the ‘unauthorised’ version that Sony had planned to release a couple of years ago was going to have some of these features - bonus 7” with locked groove, one side playing ‘inside out’ etc.

Well, since I’ve already forked out for CD reissues I absolutely don’t need of Fuzzy Logic, Radiator and Guerrilla, it’d just be churlish at this point to not get RATW…

Christ I’m a sucker.

…May have said this the last two times, too.

The atmosphere and vocal effects on this blew my 15 year old mind when it came out. So different to the singles that initially drew me in. Such sad lyrics but so brilliant.

So similar to the Mogwai thread, out of being stuck indoors due son testing positive for Covid I’ve tried to condense all the great SFA tracks into my 10 favourites. Impossible! But here it is! No particular order. I’d be interested to see what others would go for…

God! Show me Magic
Y Teimlad
(Drawing) rings around the world
Bass turned to D.E.A.D
Presidential Suite
If you don’t want me to destroy you
Some things come from nothing
Receptacle for the Respectable
Neo Consumer
Slow life
