10 Great Musicians That Are Slowly Being Forgotten
Straight out of the Welsh valleys via Newcastle, loud mouth outfit mclusky played so hard and tight that theyd smash their instruments to smithereens, when they werent all being stolen in Arizona that is. Led by witty, snarky frontman Andrew Falco Falkous, mclusky have an unpolished, utterly brazen sound thats the sort of music youd go up to your room and play when your parents got on your nerves. They also possess some of the best titled tracks of all time, with the likes of To Hell With Good Intentions, Icarus Smicarus and Falco v The Young Canoeist as some notable examples. Often hilarious, perpetually scathing, mclusky try to bite you with their giddy lyricism and frenetic, almost spastic way of playing as they just exploded out of nowhere in the early hours of the twenty first century and were more than happy to have a go at any who thought they were hard enough. With only three full length albums and one compilation edition to their name, mclusky didnt hang around too long but boy the ride was fun while it lasted. Falco went on to form the brilliant Future of the Left which in recent years seems to have overshadowed the work done as part of mclusky which, along with limited airplay during their existence, is probably one of the reasons that people are slowly forgetting about them. But if have a section of your record collection labelled Music To Throw Yourself Around To, then mclusky will fit in no problem.
