Here's Joy Division, Leonard Cohen and the Smiths.












WE STILL LOVE YOU!
Seriously, if you're feeling all glum today, just remember that St Valentine's Day is actually meant to commemorate the martyrdom of an early Christian saint.

So ignore the meaningless corporate guilt-trip it has become and take heart in the fact that all here at the Rake & Herald love you beyond words and always will do.

Go on.

G'is a kiss.

Now have a wank and a Pot Noodle.

You'll feel much better for it afterwards.

Besides, everybody knows you're better off without a wife.




The above vids are embedded here on the tune-tastic Rake & Herald from the respective YouTube channels of RHINO, gotbrut, Daniela Vrasinec and Mark Thimijan, which you can check out here, here, here and here.

Apologies to all our female readers who may have found the above article a tad male-specific but as his job title denotes, Dirk is a bit of a tosser. But worry not because editorial assistant Sandi Toxic will now kick him repeatedly in the bollocks with a pair of pointed steelies. Video to be posted on the dark web soon.
