It's the color of your skin

I used to really like the Catherine Wheel's, Black Metallic, way back when. It came up briefly in conversation this past weekend, which made me want to listen to it again. I like the fuzzy, shoegazey noise and the density of the song. It just feels big and heavy to me. I came to them by way of an old housemate who loved them, and this was the song I liked best. Dunno what ever happened to them, they just seemed to disappear. I think Rob Dickinson may have released a solo album or two, but I can't say that I'm too fussed to look them up.

Catherine Wheel > Black Metallic

Hmmm. I guess I could do without that. That didn't need to go on like that. And it was really more straight ahead rock. Funny what time does!

there's an edit of that track, but yeah this is the album version. i'm not convinced of the straight ahead rock, altho i'd probably agree if you said it leaned that way. def needs more distortion tho!
