Track Of The Day #973: LIFE – Euromillions

Before you think “What a narcissistic twat that Loz Etheridge is, promoting his own band on the website for which he is Albums Editor,” I ought to point out that I am not the same Loz Etheridge, nor have I ever had any association with either the bassist or his Hull based band.

Happily then, it turns out that LIFE are everything you could possibly want from an artist – they are politically astute, angry, intelligent, gritty and air-punchingly brilliant. ‘Euromillions’ is a brutally accurate – and necessary – assault on the far right – “You have the right to bear arms/If you’ve got the right coloured arms,” growls Mez Sanders-Green, and if that’s not the best lyric of the year so far, I don’t know what is.

You remember how, years ago, if you’d had a bad day, you could play almost any Pixies track when you returned home, and scream along to make it all better? Well, LIFE’s like that.
