Now its Christmas for you and Yule for me. I have designated one of my favorite bands for this day. Which would be the band The Associates, headlined by the wonderful man Billy MacKenzie (R.I.P). I had trouble choosing a favorite album, because I reckon that plenty of them fit that category. Actually, one of my favorite albums is the compilation that was released in 2000 called Double Hipness which features some of the best tracks they’ve made. Like the tracks “Do The Call Girl“, “Not Tonight Josephine“, “I Never Will” and “International Loner“.
If I had to recommend any album that they’ve made besides compilations, I’ll first have to mention Fourth Drawer Down as I think it’s the epitome of what they were and could’ve been. It’s sad to say that they’re not around anymore and that they released so much great material. Another album that you should check out would be their next album, which was released a year after the aforementioned and also were their third album. It was titled Sulk and had some of my other favorite songs, like “No“, “Arrogance Gave Him Up” and “Party Fears Two“.
As Christmas comes to an end, I hope you’ve had a great one. I had and I will await the next time I’ll do anything like this extravaganza. Hope you’ll continue to check my blog out and stay here for a while.
