The Hateful Throng
High-energy Britpop with guitars and even an organ. Lots of minor-key tunes with a dire but upbeat pace, a little bit '60s-retro. Innocent male vocals, lots of fast/loud guitar strumming. Happy, catchy stuff with reasonably intelligent lyrics. You gotta play it all. *FCC* on (7).|
1- Minor key, fast rolling rhythm. Violin break.
2- Mid/fast, driven.
3- Perky, popping rhythm. Cool fuzz-guitar chorus.
4- Chugging, with organ. Gets spacey near the end.
5- Swaying, mid/fast
6- Snappy quarter-note rhythm, loosens up later
7- *FCC* after first chorus. A deeper pop feel.
8- Minor key, fairly fast. Cool.
9- Relatively calm: neat little beat, cool catchy chorus, spacey break. SEGUES into:
10- Energetic, bright, breezy
11- Bright, snappy
13- Big, power-poppy, breezy. WARNING: Ends with a false start for Track 14. Fade early!
14- Serious triplets feel, still fairly fast. Nice buzzy guitar. At the end, shifts through sound effects into a wistful, sad ditty.
