CSS "Hits Me Like a Rock" (feat Bobby Gillespie)
This song does not, in fact, hit like a rock. Or even a feather. CSS have fallen pretty far since their breakthrough jams “Let’s Make Love and Listen to Death From Above” and “Music is My Hot, Hot Sex” dropped a few years back on their self titled debut LP. It now seems like they wouldn’t know an interesting idea if it hit them in the face, and after seeing them live twice, I can say their show is about as boring as their new material. Normally I wouldn’t even post a song like this, but as I listened to this song, I thought about how interesting it would be to play it for 1991 Bobby Gillespie, the awesome dude who had “played drums” in Jesus and Mary Chain and was fronting the powerhouse, drug guzzling, world conquering, Screamadelica era Primal Scream. Through the haze of MDMA, I bet he would agree that this sucks pretty bad and wonder what the hell he is doing adding his raspy howl to this dud of a track.
