Band: The Coral (Hoylake, Merseyside, UK)
Track: ARABIAN SAND
Why this one: It’s a thunderous tower of a song. Starts with a contagious, nervous beat – then this delicious psych organ comes in, followed by a stirring chorus with a warning… ‘the madman’s in the desert / look out behind you’ – halfway a frenzied guitar seems to pick up a grim fight with the madman – madness and drones upfront now. Suddenly some calm just before a storming grand finale ends this Coral masterstroke! This track is on ‘The Invisible Invasion’, their third and one of their best LPs turning 10. The record was released May 23, 2005. Happy B. to great music!
