Mmm Bus Station… I Love You

I  took this shot a week ago today, leaving for the battlefields visit from Preston Bus Station. It’s a modernist, concrete masterpiece. Unfortunately it’s also unloved, dirty, smells of diesel and a million cigarettes, not much fun inside and surrounded by buses. But still, look at those lovely sleek lines.

Underworld’s dubnobasswithmyheadman is twenty years old and about to have a five disc re-release. It’s still their best album, despite the pleasures of Second Toughest In The Infants and Beaucoup Fish. The long, bass heavy songs, driven by thumping drums, coupled with the snatched, conversational lyrics (inspired by Lou Reed’s New York apparently), machine rhythms and energy but warm, human and sexy too.
