Wheels Of Steel: Tracks Dean Marney Would Love (Probably) by Steve Holden

Wheels of Steel Poster Track Dean Marney Would Love.jpg

The Wheels of Steel are back turning. Stevie Holden is here with a collection of tracks which will get any Millenial-aged Smacks-attendee ready to down a jug of sangria, put their arm around their mates and wonder why they've only ever played one Joy Division song, before being the last to leave and head to Isa Bar.

They're also songs which Dean Marney loves. Probably.

Taking a look at Ste's notes on the Shed Seven track, it's yet another case of Shocker brainwashing folk. If it isn't telling his young second team bowlers to "shift... it... just..." or anyone near him on the Turf that "all referees are Beelzebub's children", he also spends time brainwashing people into liking Shed Seven.

Enjoy just under an hour of indie classics...
