Super Furry Animals - Run-Away

Album: Hey Venus! (Rough Trade,2007) Chart pos:UK#120

Super Furry Animals are one of those bands who are musical magpies, one minute imitating the Beach Boys one minute and then imitating Burt Bacharach the next (in their own tongue-in-cheek way). Run-away is the Welsh eccentrics attempt at Spectorish wall of sound pop with singer Gruff Rhys singing about a breakup with quirky offbeat lines such as "We may have fought with teeth and nails/I still recall your banking details".

Funnily enough i saw the band play mime at T4 on the Beach in Weston Super-Mare (as seen on the link above as embedding is forbidden)and instead of miming like the rest of the band he put his microphone against the robot helmet he was wearing. A pity that more bands pull stuff like this at miming gigs.
