While browsing the net this morning, I discovered that there was a new Killers album out, entitled Sawdust. I was so excited by this news, I immediately went and downloa… err… went out to HMV and bought it.

Sawdust isn’t your typical Killers album, more of a collection of B-Sides, soundtrack titles and covers; it is still, like all Killers material, very good indeed.

Some stand out tracks include Tranquilize which features Lou Reed – the one who was on that Satellite of Love dance track a few years ago (although he probably also did some albums that old people may remember).

There is a wonderful track called Sweet Talk, which captures the Killers’ style perfectly.

Also on the album is an excellent remix of the Sam’s Town track which is on the previous album of the same name.

The best song on the album is kept to near the end – a beautiful cover of Dire Straight’s Romeo and Juliet. D.S. fans will probably see it as sacrilege, but if like me, you love The Killers and couldn’t give a toss about Mark Knopfler and his fellow Geordies, you’ll adore the track.

I was surprised that their cover of Morrissey’s Why Don’t You Find Out For Yourself wasn’t included – quiet possibly the best cover of any song ever.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
