I'd forgotten how ace is this song...
They should never have released anything else !
really like the album. I think Be My Enemy's better anyway.
I've not heard the album, but Be My Enemy is a better song.
That's all I have to say on the matter.
who would choose sex over music !
Be My Enemy was pretty shit.
My single of 2004. An awesome song. The rest of the album they put was pants though.
Where have they gone?! True All Mapped out is excellent. They seemed a bit "of the moment" when they came out though. I'm sure they were signed after only a few gigs
All Mapped Out came out within about eight months of their first gig or something like that. I really liked it - derivative, yes, but there were far worse supping at the post-punk teat at the time. They seem to still be going: http://www.myspace.com/THEDEPARTUREMUSIC
Thought that song was dull.
Thought the album was really average.
I'd probably hate it all if I listen again...
It's great big dumb hokum, disco tunes with chunky uber-catchy basslines and battling guitars. Often unintentionally hilarious, faux cockney vocals and bizarre lyrics really add to a good time. Lump In My Throat is their best tune, not All Mapped Out or Be My Enemy. Looking forward to the next album, I hope it's out soon, they work really well as a summer band.
Very VERY good song indeed.
Patches of the album are....OK.
