Waltz Around Her

Another long song but one that seems to shoot by far quicker than yesterday’s expansive Screamadelica is Bang Bang Machine’s Geek Love (also a favourite of Drew’s but I don’t think he’s posted it this year). Bang Bang Machine, from Evesham near Worcester, never really found much success outside the indie ghetto and self financed this 12″ which was also a favourite of John Peel and his listeners, who made it their Festive Fifty number one in 1992. The song starts out as indie rock but at a couple of minutes in becomes something dancier and stays there in, a dance-shoegaze groove with a totally hypnotic drum pattern and entrancing vocals, building further until finishing just after nine minutes. Lovely.
