Track Of The Day #718: H.A.T.Y.M & UNCLE PEANUT – This is Wot We Call Music

11008058_1551295678468726_5694869857249394217_nAs you are, no doubt, still reeling from One Direction’s demise yesterday, wrap your ears around ‘This is Wot We Call Music’. It’s the unusual Reading duo H.A.T.Y.M & UNCLE PEANUT‘s scattergun of punky, prescient, polemic that ties together seemingly each and every currently hyped music act in one minute and eighteen seconds flat. A witty stream of bile that suggests that what some people call music often isn’t worth the air space!

“Jason Derulo farts trumpets/Evil Blizzard/Pretty Vicious/Milk Teeth/God Damn” fires off Uncle Peanut amusingly above Here Are The Young Men’s rattling fractured scorched instrumental. Sleaford Mods may have cornered the market in documenting urban demise above a dream beat, but Uncle Peanut and his accomplice reach into popular culture and expose its utter absurdity. Their sound is redolent of both the cut and paste hip hop with a message of Dan Le Sac and Scroobius Pip and Estuary snarl of Ian Dury‘s ironic, pointed ditties. This is what WE call MUSIC!

“Here Are The Young Men (Jay) & Uncle Peanut (Pete) met through a joint fascination with British Public Information films of the 1970’s, the cover art of classic Look-In magazines and an appreciation of a wide range of music.

Having played some well received dates with Sleaford Mods earlier this year, H.A.T.Y.M & UNCLE PEANUT will appearing at Soho’s legendary 100 Club on 10th Sept before turning their attention to their immersive (and frankly disturbing) performance show; ‘Get In The Back Of The Van’ which they will be bringing to Reading’s South Street Arts Centre later this year.”
