Totally Random Music Postings #5
Something a bit different for you today. Welsh band Super Furry Animal's finest moment. It’s a psychedelic, prog rock, punk, techno trip of a track. Released in 1996, unsurprisingly The Man Don’t Give A Fuck a great political statement received no radio airplay, shame it would have made a great Number One. The chap flicking the V-Sign on the cover deserves a mention himself. Robin Friday was a talented 1970’s footballing bad boy with a penchant for mind expanding drugs and alcohol. He was once arrested at Cardiff railway station when he arrived from Reading (his previous club) for fare dodging, he also took a shit in another players kit bag after he’d been sent off for kicking the player in the face. Cardiff City had to let him go due to his volatility becoming a liability. He died in 1990 aged 38 from a suspected heart attack, they don't make 'em like Robin anymore. Super Furry Animals dedicated this single to his memory and his stand against the “man” check it out!
