When I thought about doing up the list of 46 albums, one that was certain to make the list was ‘Fight Like Apes and The Mystery of the Golden Medallion‘. It’s bloody great, that’s why. I’m well late to the game with this album though, having picked it up a few weeks before Zavvi shut its doors in Kilkenny but start to finish it’s top notch stuff. We’d featured tracks from them on the podcast when the album was released last September but it took me until the UK release in January to get off my arse and grab it.
Why did I wait?
Quality tunes, great lyrics, beats that are just too catchy and even the packaging rocks. They’ve played Glastonbury, Oxegen, Reading and Leeds, have supported and toured with the Prodigy, the Ting Tings, Kasabian, We Are Scientists and more and they’re going from strength to strength. In the wind up I think I only paid 7 or 8 quid for the album but if you’ve not heard it, get to listening. Check the track below for some FLApes goodness and stop by the FLApes MySpace and site.
