Sometimes people approach me on the streets and say "Mr. Purists, are there any songs currently on release that you feel go on a little bit too long?" Usually, I'm a bit stuck for an answer.
However, as of today I can confidently reply, "Yes, that new track Be Brave by The Strange Boys. It's only three minutes long, but it seems to go on forever."
Have a listen below. You get the idea within the first twenty seconds and then the same guitar motif gets repeated approximately eight times, enlived, thankfully, by a squawking sax riff. Like most good garage rock, this should cut off at about the 1' 30" mark.
While I'm on about it See also E=MC2 by Big Audio Dynamite, which, although great in lots of ways, to my mind also goes far longer than it needs to, and long after we've got the idea.
