The Charlatans, Up To Our Hips

This album is brilliant in the way it plainly looks you in the eye and tells you to fuck off. Few albums have ever shown so little apparent regard for anything or anyone. It’s just cool. Absolutely. And what makes this such a great album to listen to is the way that this very sentiment becomes owned wholeheartedly by its audience. In essence: listen to this and you will be a lot cooler than you were before. Seriously. Best track: ‘Patrol.’
