Greatest riffs?

Postby Keith Richard » 17th Oct 06, 20:35

One of the primary reasons I'm so hooked on the Wildhearts is the riffs. If I were asked to pick one stand out riff section it'd probably be the one towards the close of Action Panzer. There are some great (and creative) riffs on Skybabies and many of the older "b" sides. What are your standout Wildhearts riffs?
cause the chances are good that it wont let you down, like maybe drinking with Keith, or seeing Dolly Parton's tits...

Everlone contains some of my favourites - so many others as well, but, as i think i said on another thread, those circular riffs in the middle just kick serious arse 8) And the intro is pretty unbeatable too.

Best song would get a totally different answer, but best riff? Zomboid.

The start and finish of Caprice, the main riff in Nita Nitro and pretty much of all Inglorious!
And...ahh fuck it let's face it Ginger is the riffmaster general!

I've always loved 'Do Anything''s heavy glam-funk leviathan of a riff. Great distorted robo-pop rapping, too.



Like a glammed-up silver T-Rex on a trampoline!
