    Pick of the week...

    Xymox - Metamorphosis (1992)



    You're not seeing things, this is the Madchester Desk and yes, I'm picking a dutch goth band.

    Trust me, this album's not in the least goth-like. It's an acid driven beat fest, not unlike Chapterhouse or 808 State of the same era. Why or how the band chose to go in this direction is beyond me, but this is one of the finest acid albums of the Madchester era.

    Choice Cuts:
    Dream On
    Real
    Awakening

  • Well, Renegade Soundwave were not from Manchester, but musically they fit in here, don't they? And what about The Fall from that era? At least they are from Manchester. I guess some flexibility wouldn't do any harm, otherwise this list will be a difficult one to finish, right?

    808 State - Magical Dream (Ninety, 1989)
    Blur - Wear Me Down (Leisure, 1991)
    Bridewell Taxis - Honesty (1990)
    The Fall - Telephone Thing (Extricate, 1990)

    Today's Lyrics

    Carter USM - Sheriff Fatman

    Sherrif Fatman started out is business as a granny farmer
    He ws infamous for fifteen minutes
    And he appeared on Panorama
    Then he somehow got on board a Starship Enterprise Allowance Scheme
    With a Prince of Wales Award
    For pushing valium and amphetamines

    Moving Up on Second Base
    With Nicholas Van Whats His Face
    At six foot six
    And 100 Tons
    The undisputed King of the Slums
    With more alias' than Klaus Barbie
    Master Butcher of Leigh on Sea
    Just about to take the stage
    The one and only - hold the front page

    Fatman's got something to sell
    To the Capital's homeless
    A Crossroad's Motel
    For the No Fixed Abodeless
    Where you can live life in style
    If you sleep in a closet
    And if you flash him a smile
    He'll take your teeth as deposit

    There's bats in the belfrey
    The windows are jammed
    The toilet's ain't healthy
    He don't give a damn
    Just chuckles and smiles
    Laughs like a madman
    A born again Rachman
    Here comes Sherrif Fatman

    With his valium, amphetamines
    Sicknotes and his phoney prescriptions
    Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the kitchen
    Dead heads and cracked heads
    Bunk beds and breakfasts
    Wake up you sleepyheads
    Check this

    Moving up on second base
    with Nicholas Van Whatshis face
    At six foot six
    And 100 tons
    The undisputed King of the Slums
    With more alias' than Klaus Barbie
    The Master Butcher of Leigh on Sea
    Just about to take the stage
    The only and only hold the front page
