Noughties By Nature #6: Blakfish - Jeremy Kyle Is A Marked Man

Brutal and sarcastic pretty much sums up Blakfish's back-catalogue - both musically and lyrically. Taken from their EP See You In Another City, Jeremy Kyle... - despite the social statement its title suggests - seems to follow the more innocent plot of superhero vs supervillain and the ensuing distress. It's this simple but slightly abstract approach to the lyrical content, combined with an absolutely glorious chorus melody, that make it the pinnacle of Blakfish's career so far. This will kick your teeth in with such sublime accuracy that you won't know what's hit you.
