Gold Medal


The standout track from Fuck Buttons 2009 album Tarot Sport- Olympians. Ten minutes plus of joyful, melodic, ecstatic, headspinning, roomfilling noise, drums and production courtesy of Andrew Weatherall. If the organisers of London 2012 use this for the opening ceremony it'll be an interesting games. I've sometimes wondered about the band's name- is it just two words jammed together, one being offensive in order to catch the eye? An attempt at being 100% Googleable? Or did they overhear a jacket fastening conversation? 'It's zips for me, I can't handle buttons, fuck buttons'.
