Phenomenal Lies – The Best of 2014


Taken as a whole 2014 was a shitter of a year – basically a very downbeat extra verse of Billy Joel’s We Didn’t Start The Fire – and 2015’s not doing much so far to buck that trend. In the relatively inconsequential world of music, there was at least a lot to remind us that we’re not all hurtling towards the abyss while nature and each other takes turns to do us in as payback for all the terrible things we do every day.

Check out those cats above – that building was on fire, and two of them turned out to be disputed killers, but they’re still finding time to have fun.
