OUT OF TIME
BLUR, THINK TANK (2003)
Chosen by: Gruff Rhys, Super Furry Animals
“Out Of Time resonates for me at the moment. I’m interested in how songs’ meanings apply differently at different times and develop with time and this song seems very prescient. It’s a great broken vocal, the whole feel of the song is very raw and sounds more like a Gábor Szabó track than a conventional pop song but obviously his mad skills as a melodicist shine through. Damon’s gift for melodies has always made my ears pop out when I hear his songs and would probably be off the scale on his Top Trumps card.”
“Mad skills”: onstage with Gruff Rhys, London, 2012.
