REWIND: Super Furry Animals - 'If You Don't Want Me To Destroy You'

More wonderful music from 1996 as RW/FF takes you aboard a musical TARDIS on a journey through musical history. If you weren't around or were too young to remember the mid 90s, consider this a lesson of enlightenment. If you (like me) were lucky enough to experience it all first time around, then these posts make a fine nostalgic blast from the blast. 

The Top 10 in the UK singles chart from 20 years ago this week (October 6 - 12, 1996) is probably one of the most impressive I've ever seen, despite the presence of Celine Dion at number 4 and Dina Carroll at number 10. See the full chart rundown HERE.

After returning from a five year hiatus for some gigs last year, Welsh indie legends Super Furry Animals surprised everyone with a new single recently, their first in seven years. I'm a massive fan of this band, but I'm not going to pretend that I loved 'Bing Bong', which has to be the biggest disappointment of recent times, alongside that new Divine Comedy album. If SFA ever return with a new album. I'm hoping the quality is more up to the standards of this exquisite track from the band's debut album 'Fuzzy Logic'. 'If You Don't Want Me To Destroy You' reached number 18 in the charts exactly 20 years ago this week, and still sounds magnificent 2 decades later. A special deluxe edition of the album will be released soon, and is available to pre-order now.
