David Shrigley’s Worried Noodles
There is something extra-special about an album with innovative packaging. Combine that with great music and you have something to truly behold. Which is exactly what Worried Noodles is. As an artbook---a hardcover booklet featuring 50-plus pages of original Shrigley drawings and handwritten lyrics---it would stand on its own. But inside there are 39 exclusive tracks from the likes of Liars, Franz Ferdinand, Hot Chip, Les George Leningrad, Mt. Eerie and Scout Niblett. For the cost of a double CD, this is a steal. The only problem we see is deciding whether it gets filed with our CDs or alongside our Neckface and Chris Johanson catalogues.
