Bloc party - "i still remember"

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

i remember seeing this band when they toured with the strokes in the early 2000s and being blown away as an early teen, on of my fondest show memories, i think First Impressions of the Earth had just dropped

This one predates A Weekend in the City a little, I think they recorded it around the time of "Two More Years" (another great song), so it's probably closer to Silent Alarm chronologically, but it never appeared on anything except this charity compilation called "Help! A Day in the Life" from 2005. But anyway, I've always said it's my favourite Bloc Party song and it probably still is:

I've probably made all of my Bloc Party posts 5 times before but this band used to be very special to me.
