7. Fight Like Apes - Lightsabre Cocksucker Blues (Model Citizen)
I'm finally going to get to see Fight Like Apes next week when they arrive in York for the second time. I missed them the first because I wasn't feeling too good but I won't be missing them this time. They're playing the night after The Wedding Present which will put some strain on the old personal finances but quite frankly... who cares. This track is from the Apes new EP which has quite possibly the longest title known to mankind. It's called the "You Filled His Head With Fluffy Clouds And Jolly Ranchers What Did You Think Was Going To Happen" EP. I think this might only be available in the U.S. but I'm sure you'll be able to track one down on this interweb thingy.
