Day two, and our 5daysof65days lands at album one: ‘The Fall Of Math’.

Released in September 2004 via Monotreme, the Sheffield four-piece’s debut immediately engaged with the underground, with fans of music that was neither rock (post- or otherwise) or dance, but setting fire to a middle ground all of its own.

‘Retreat! Retreat!’, featuring a Matt Dillon sample from the film Singles, was the first single from ‘The Fall Of Math’, and is one of 65days’ calling-card tracks to this day due to its immense popularity. A live staple, it’s a rush of euphoria to match any skin-prickler you can name.

DOWNLOAD LINK EXPIRED

Remember, these 65daysofstatic tracks will only be available to download ‘til April 24. So click while they’re hot. Yesterday we featured the track ‘Ophelia.Remix’, something of a rarity to say the least. Get it HERE.

Of ‘Retreat Retreat’, 65days guitarist Paul Wolinski has the following to say:

“The closest thing we have apparently ever come to being radio-friendly. This is a shame, because we've desperately tried to make more accessible stuff ever since and failed miserably. Steve Lamacq played this quite a lot on Radio 1, which was the most exciting thing that had ever happened to us. It almost didn't even make the album. We thought it sounded like a sub-standard Part Chimp. Uncleared samples too - winner!”

Tomorrow: more 65days sounds…
