That Motorik Beat

As a general rule of thumb, if you're looking for a piece of music guaranteed to grab my attention, make it something with a motorik beat. 'Whitest Boy On the Beach', the current single by Fat White Family is an irresistible example.

Once I start, I just can't stop. So while you're here, help yourself to a slab of 'Sea Within a Sea', taken from 'Primary Colours', the second LP by The Horrors, issued in 2009.

Finally 'Knickerbocker', the first track on Fujiya & Miyagi's third album, 'Lightbulbs', released in 2008.

Been meaning to check FWF out. Sea Wthin A Sea is superb and such a shock that they could make something like that when it came out. F&J have got their moments too

FWF is on my shopping list. Beautiful video too. Thanks Swede.

Oddly, I was listening to a bit of both Fat White Family and Fujiya & Miyagi last night. Now, that Motorik beat is always utterly addictive, isn't it? Of all the beats, I'd say it was in my top three. Of these, I 'Knickerbocker' best of all.

Sorry, you've lost me with the Motorik beat and as for Fat White Family well, I won't detain you any longer.
