Freddy Kreuger (Single)


The second single taken from 'Racecar is Racecar Backwards', this was released after yet another long gap between records, in June 2004. It was the first single to have been recorded as part of the album, unlike Stuck In My Throat, which was later re-recorded. It was also the first release on XtraMile/Sony, whom the band had at last signed a proper record deal with. The single was released on CD and 7" vinyl format, and reached number 53 in the UK charts, knocking previous single SIMT off the band's 'biggest hit yet' spot. It also made the number one spot on the Chain With No Name independent chart, and Zane Lowe made it his Radio One single of the week. It was Reuben's first track to be playlisted on XFM, their first track to be played on Mary Anne Hobbs' Rock Show, and it even got a few spins on Virgin radio!
