Any record hunter will tell you that persistence pays off. And I struck a little gold mine when I was shopping last week at Zia Records in Phoenix. I found a few 45s on the cheap, including a Kaiser Chiefs single for I Predict a Riot. There were two copies, each at 99 cents. I bought both.
The B-side, Take My Temperature, is actually kind of ironic. Vocalist Ricky Wilson sings: “You can take my temperature because I’m 100 degrees in the shade.” In Austin at the ACL Festival, it was Wilson who damn near passed out (see below photo) after their fantastic set because of the oppressive heat. Seems like a fitting tune.
