Hangin' with Howard Marks
Label: Creation Records
Released in 1996, at the tail end of the Brit pop explosion, the Welsh Super Furry Animals had too many ideas and even more odd impulses that didn't sit well with Brit pop's rigid style guides. Their riff-driven power pop sparkled with bits of psychedelic folk, and they weren't afraid to act like they were completely bonkers, either. A good combination.
