Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip “Thou Shalt Always Kill” (Lex)

What do you mean you haven’t heard this already? Where have you been? What radio station have you been listening to?

There will always be a place in pop for the list song. Moulin Rouge director Baz Luhrmann’s ode to the joys of sunscreen, James Murphy wailing his way through the hipster laments of “Losing My Edge” or A House’s dissertation on great dead (male) artists on “Endless Art” come to mind. You can add your own likes to the list.

Now, we can now this. Scroobius Pip takes care of the rhymes, while Dan Le Sac looks after the electro stuffing which gos around these new-school tenets. For the rest of the year, expect to hear the following mantra quite a lot:

Thou shalt not put musicians and recording artists on ridiculous pedestals no matter how great they are or were.

The Beatles… were just a band.

Led Zeppelin… Just a band.

The Beach Boys… Just a band.

The Sex Pistols… Just a band.

The Clash… Just a band.

Crass… Just a band.

Minor Threat… Just a band.

The Cure… Just a band.

The Smiths… Just a band.

Nirvana… Just a band.

The Pixies… Just a band.

Oasis… Just a band.

Radiohead… Just a band.

Bloc Party… Just a band.

The Arctic Monkeys… Just a band.

The Next Big Thing.. Will be just a band.
