Top tracks: Europe edge battle with Ian Hunter and Bonafide
6. Biffy Clyro – Stingin’ Bell This is the first track to be taken from Biffy’s Clyro’s upcoming new album, Opposites. We reckon it’s a triumphal return for the idiosyncratic Scots rockers (we particularly like the bagpipes, along with the prickly line: ‘You think you’re cool like a porcupine’). But you TOTW voters out there didn’t exactly agree, and you voted it next-to-bottom in our latest chart.
7. We Three And The Death Rattle – Hey Detonator! WTATDR are a distortion-fuelled three-piece from Leicester. Their sound is filled with thunderous bass drums and grating guitar riffs, with Amy Cooper’s edgy and ever-so-slightly-mental vocals reminding us a bit of Cristina Martinez (Boss Hog). You didn’t seem to like them much, though, this being the least popular song in our TOTW showdown.
