I know nothing about them - who does?!
or that they're meant to sound like this decade's incarnation of the Happy Mondays (as if we need one).
The NME are hugeing them up and they are from some place called Birmingham
on t'wireless the other day. It wasn't very good.
It's the best thing I've heard since 1991.
I had never heard a single peep about them prior to the turn of the year and now they are going to be foisted on us as a band of the year.
I could say the same about this 'Mika' cunt.
they were with the local promoters who became the Editors managers.
Saw them about 18 months ago and laughed at what a ridiculous proposition they were. Based on that, I suppose I should've guessed they'd do well.
and am therefore an expert. Go on, ask me anything.
Although the singer was talking excitedly about having caviar for the first time when they got taken out to lunch. "Fifty quid for a little pot!"
As with everything in the interview, it became even funnier when I read it in a comedy Brummie accent
Seriously. Pick a thread, and read it in a comedy Brummie accent. Guaranteed 43% funnier, or your money back.
Apart from having the worst name ever, what's so great about them?
They sound a bit like the Happy Mondays and a bit like the Stone Roses, but with a Brummie Mike Skinner wannabe on vocals. What's not to love?
(Disclaimer: I haven't actually heard them yet)
Also, worst name ever goes to The Strum Down, who added me on myspace. You can guess how dull their music is.
I would half-man, half-biscuit to that description.
I'm starting to warm to them...
But the backing music sounded an awful lot like U2 on the single.
I hate them already.
comes across as a cunt in the NME. It's an inevitable effect of the over-excitable writing and presentation.
as The Enemy, but still pretty bad.
