    Good number 1 , Simon – that track seems to have been forgotten about in the other 2009 polls I’ve seen. Will there be any Super Furrys LP’s in the albums of the decade I wonder?

    Yes, I agree, well remembered Simon, and good on you for sticking to your guns and not being swayed by what’s in other 2010 polls. I searched online for the song’s video, as I thought it might be nice to embed the video in your blog – but to my surprise there isn’t a video for it.

    And anyway, Phil – I didn’t think you looked at any other lists..! 😉 Now then, that’s a thought, which SFA album might make it into the end of decade polls? My personal favourite is Guerrilla but that was 1999. Mwng was 2000, which is pleasing to recall because it means I can say that my favourite b-side of the decade is Charge, which was the b-side to the 7″ of Ysbeidiau Heulog.
