So you’ve unpacked, had your first of many “down it fresher” moments, and maybe even managed to work out where Halifax is. These tunes should provide the perfect soundtrack to your continuing Freshers’ inauguration.
Screaming Females – ‘A New Kid’
Calm those newbie nerves to the sounds of raucous garage-punk.
Capdown – ‘Kained But Able’
Honestly, mastering this state will be the key to your survival …
Example – ‘Sick Note’
… but for those who can’t, get chummy with online self-certification of illness – effectively your ‘Get Out Of Jail Free’ card for that post-Ziggy’s 9.15 seminar.
Phoenix – ‘Long Distance Call’
This one’s for when you drunk dial your friends from back home at stupid o’clock trying to explain why the Willow is such a magical place.
Chromeo – ‘I’m Not Contagious’
Be prepared for the inevitability of freshers’ flu and a corresponding Lemsip dependency.
