Wildhearts Faves

The band that defined my music tastes, and were amazingly consistent throughout their career (save for ...Must Be Destroyed!), and the fact that pretty much all of their b-sides were as high quality as their album tracks means this list could have gone on much further...
1The Wildhearts

A song that distils everything that was glorious about The Wildhearts. Riff after wonderful riff, glorious harmonies and Metallica-sized heaviness all wrapped up in almost 8 of the best minutes anywhere.
2Caffeine Bomb

Ginger's punk roots worn on his sleeve. So good they re-released their debut album to include it!
3I Wanna Go Where The People Go

P.H.U.Q. is, for me, a slightly underwhelmig album in comparison, but it opens with an almost unmatchable high. The NY filmed video is a blast too.
4The Miles Away Girl

Fave track from their best album. Earth vs is just unbelievably consistent.
5Sky Babies

Nearly 12 minutes long, and doesn't get close to repetetive once. By the end, it almost feels like about 5 songs have played, but they complement each other perfectly to fit one giant riff-a-thon.

The first time Ginger unveils his ability to seamlessly twist one riff into another over and over again.
7If Life Is Like A Lovebank I Want An Overdraft

Crazy title, crazier song.
8My Baby Is A Headfuck

Piano driven rock n roll, featuring the genius of Willie Dowling for the first of many times.
9The Jackson Whites

Latter day WH matching the quality of the early days.
10Shut Your Fucking Mouth (And Use Your Fucking Brain)

Another top title for an absolute punk blast.
11Geordie In Wonderland

Wonderfule ode to the North East, with a mandolin.
12S.I.N. In Sin

Love these punky numbers.

The most immediate track from their debut. Calm and cold as a witches tit?
14Weekend (5 Long Days)

Was always a humungous live track.
15Sick Of Drugs

Lyrics changed when played live depending on the topical tabloid hysteria.
16Nita Nitro

Choppy guitar riff heaven.
17Do The Channel Bop

The expected awesome riffage, but a children's choir?!
1829 x The Pain

Always fun to spot the music references within.
19TV Tan

As a kid, was my favourite track. Still great.
20Nothing Ever Changes But The Shoes

Ah, the nostalgia...
21Slaughtered Authors

S/T album relived the awesome 8 minute riffathons. This is the most distinctiveof those tracks.
22The Snake, The Lion, The Monkey And The Spider

Free download, Chutzpah kind-of bonus track. All sorts of crazy and off-kilter riffy goodness.
23Liberty Cap

Brooding and menacing bassline.

The drop near the end will destroy any inferior speakers!
