7 top tunes from The Cribs

March 11, 2015, Article by Tom in Culture, Music

Wakefield’s finest export The Cribs are back with a new album, For All My Sisters, out on March 23rd. We’re huge fans of the Jarman brothers so can’t wait to hear it, especially as the tunes we’ve heard so far (so as ‘Burning For No One’) have been bloody great.

While we wait for the new album to arrive in record shops, here are a few reminders of why The Cribs are always essential listening.

7 top tunes from The Cribs

‘Come On, Be A No-One’: One of the highlights from their previous LP, 2012’s In the Belly of the Brazen Bull

‘Our Bovine Public’: Some say that their third album, the Alex Kapranos-produced Men’s Needs, Women’s Needs, Whatever, is quite poppy, but that certainly ain’t the case with the storming opening track

‘We Share The Same Skies’: Built around a classic Johnny Marr riff, this is one of our favourite tunes from his time with the band

‘Mirror Kissers’: Classic Cribs, from their brilliant second album The New Fellas

‘Hey Scenesters!’: One of their first ‘hits’, this is a middle finger to all scenesters out there. Still glorious, still depressingly relevant.

‘Be Safe’: Featuring Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth. Just listen to it. And then remember that it’s even better live.

‘You Were Always The One’: We’re ending by going right back to the start, with this tune from their 2004 self-titled debut

 The Cribs’ new album, For All My Sisters, is released on March 23rd. Pre-order bundles are available here, so get involved
