Songs for the apocalypse: The Tyde “Your Tattoos”

Tracing their roots to early 1990s LA indie band Further, formed by Darren Rademaker and brother Brent (who went on to form another classic americana band Beachwood Sparks), The Tyde cite Felt, The Beach Boys and The Byrds as major influences and you can hear them and more all over this track from their debut album ‘Once’ from 2001 which still sounds as fresh today as when it came out 18 years ago.  Listen to that sublime instrumental break at 2.22 and the refrain that follows: “You made me wish I was your man”. A timeless sentiment but one that rarely sounds as heartfelt as the last minute of this song. I still love it more than life itself (and it taught me how to spell the word “tattoos”).
