And so begins the countdown of my ‘finds of 2010’. Seeing that I only listened to the radio about three times this year (in May as I remember, which might account for the number of tracks from around then) it’s hardly a definitive best of the 2010. Some of the tracks are from 2009 for a start. Oh well, lets go…

Hot Chip – Shake A Fist

December 4, 2007

CLICK HERE FOR THE LATEST FROM THE GOOD HEADS

Ian Brown Illegal Attacks Lyrics

So what the fuck is this UK
Gunnin’ with this US of A
In Iraq and Iran and in Afghanistan

Does not a day go by
Without the Israeli Air Force
Fail to drop it’s bombs from the sky?

How many mothers to cry?
How many sons have to die?
How many missions left to fly over Palestine?
‘Cause as a matter of facts
It’s a pact, it’s an act
These are illegal attacks
So bring the soldiers back
These are illegal attacks
It’s contracts for contacts
I’m singing concrete facts
So bring the soldiers back

What mean ya that you beat my people
What mean ya that you beat my people
And grind the faces of the poor

So tell me just how come were the Taliban
Sat burning incense in Texas
Roaming round in a Lexus
Sittin’ on six billion oil drums
Down with the Dow Jones, up on the Nasdaq
Pushed into the war zones

It’s a commercial crusade
‘Cause all the oil men get paid
And only so many soldiers come home
It’s a commando crusade
A military charade
And only so many soldiers come home

Soldiers, soldiers come home
Soldiers come home

Through all the blood and sweat
Nobody can forget
It ain’t the size of the dog in the fight
It’s the size of the fight in the dog on the day or the night
There’s no time to reflect
On the threat, the situation, the bark nor the bite
These are commercial crusades
‘Cos all the oil men get paid
These are commando crusades
Commando tactical rape
And from the streets of New York and Baghdad to Tehran and Tel Aviv
Bring forth the prophets of the Lord
From dirty bastards fillin’ pockets
With the profits of greed

These are commercial crusades
Commando tactical raids
Playin’ military charades to get paid

And who got the devils?
And who got the Lords?
Build yourself a mountain – Drink up in the fountain
Soldiers come home
Soldiers come home
Soldiers come home
Soldiers come home

What mean ya that you beat my people
What mean ya that you beat my people
And grind the faces of the poor

The Beastie Boys are coming back in 2007 with an instrumental only album that’s sounding pretty cool from the stuff that’s leaked out so far. One of the few bands that improved album by album over a period of 10 years or so, peaking with Hello Nasty, don’t know the wisdom behind dropping the vocals but bring it on. Looks like there’s going to be a movie to accompany each track from the album so stay tuned. Here’s Off The Grid and The Rat Cage followed by an MP3 download of Off The Grid from another site. Don’t think Off The Grid is the lp version, just a live in the studio take.
