Bicycle Inspired Music: Part One

This has been something I’ve wanted to get on the site for a long time, but if it isn’t cycling it’s not on Headset Press. But finally I’ve found a way to cheat our own rule. I proudly bring you Bicycle Inspired Music! I’m searching hard to find genuinely interesting music with a bicycle name or theme. Here are my first three…

First up is from Hervé which features the rad title, Better than a BMX (when I was 12 there was nothing better, not even Kim Wilde). Admittedly this isn’t Hervé’s best work, this sort of thing is: Here

Next up is a man who should need little introduction is Tom Waits, but in case you don’t know, look no further than here. Broken Bicycles is a melancholy song, but classic Waits. Don’t cry.

Last up is one of my favourites. Bicycles, Flutes and You. By Up, Bustle Out. One of the original Ninja Tune acts. From the amazing album, One Colour Just Reflects Another. They’re also from Bristol, the spiritual home of Headset Press, so must be really good – them not us.
