are Bristolians Gary Ealy and Scott Hendy who care little about slavishly following contemporary trends and just do what they like. And that's 60's psych pop, Portishead and DJ Shadow. They renamed themselves from Malakai to Malchai in 2010 after they found out that there is already a US rapper by this name.
«Return To The Ugly Side» was released in January 2011 on Double Six.
I’d sit there motionless, the soapy water relaxing me as I stare, eyes wide and glazed, re-running the routine over and over in my mind, then I’d load my gun and pick a shirt.
It is the most beautiful, romantic dinner setty uppy tune. The warm chord changes will keep you more than occupied until the Pizzaboy arrives.
I’d sit there motionless, eyes wide and glazed, stroking the gun in my pocket and just as the chorus kicks in I’d jump to my feet and slay as many as possible before being wrestled to the floor by security.
Mmm, difficult one that! Maybe «Cider Drinker» by The Wurzels?
I think I'd have to say « I Am A Cider Drinker» by The Wurzels.
Definitely The Wurzels’ «Cider Drinker». Ugh! What happened last night? Weren’t we in a cornfield at some point?
I don’t drive or own a car but if I did it would be something calm that stems the road rage. Maybe some Nick Drake, The Mills Brothers (an afro-american pop and jazz vocal quartet from the 30’s) or Studio One era reggae, or something loud and obnoxious like the bastards two doors down from my house.
Probably «I Am A Cider Drinker» by The Wurzels.
I never listen to music when I play pingpong as I take my game very seriously, in fact I'm just about to serve now so SILENCE! (please)
They always tell me to turn my stereo off on planes, and my phone, next they'll tell me I can't wear my shoebombs!
I’d blast «There’s A Ghost In My House» by R. Dean Taylor as a «come on» to all occupying spirits, then I'd leave a Westlife CD on repeat in the furthest room away. I figure any damned souls or gruesome ghouls will want to stick to their own while all the cool ghosties can cower with me under the bed in my room.
Anything but The Wurzels. Ooo my head hurts...
It's my phone alarm. Or if it’s a text it’s the opening guitar stab from «A Hard Days Night». Other than that I can’t listen to music when I’ve just got up.

A demo version with vintage Lennon goofing.
Which was the first song they cut for themselves on vinyl when they still were The Quarrymen. The song was written by McCartney and Harrison and was recorded in 1958. I read, that the recording cost them 17 shillings and six pence and they only pressed one acetate of it, which of course makes it the most valuable record in existence. When you think of what was in store for them it makes it compelling listening.
