Sometimes you need a tune to rage with. And nothing does it better than The The’s I’ve Been Waiting For Tomorrow (For All My Life) or has done for, well, most of my life. All the rage, all the anger, all the guilt, all the disappointment and despair. In a healthy five minutes and forty-six seconds. Forty-eight minutes if you count the rest of Soul Mining, a long-player never more suited to bouncing off the walls as The The deliver one of life’s most fucked up sonic beauties. It’s a tune that signals I need to jump, sweat and be at one with drums so fierce the neighbours will definitely complain. Something I’ve happily dealt with my whole life. Because if Matt Johnson taught me one thing its this. Rage away people. Just make sure you spent your money on a bloody good amp and speakers. Your neighbours may never thank you but, my, your soul will. Mining deep with this glorious expedition into the dark stuff one post-punk synth-pop beat at a time.
