Viewing Gum Listening Post #19

N-n-n-n-n-nineteen. N-n-nineteen. Nineteen! Apparently, as a tiny child, Paul Hardcastle’s ’19’ was my favourite song on account of it being the number of our house. Obviously none of the war and tragedy stuff caught my attention – but hey, when you’re a child, simply recognising numbers correctly was something to celebrate. And so too do we all celebrate a new Viewing Gum Listening Post. Yay! And a bumper one at that! As ever, it kicks off pretty boisterous and ends up more melancholy and contemplative, but if you didn’t know the procedure by now, you’ll never learn. Stream this sucker below or click nyah for thirteen tip-top tunes handpicked by yours truly.
