I want to send him this:
International Trust – “Talk Of The Town” (Redlace Records)
Leeds’ International Trust pimp un-reconstituted lad-rock of robust proportions (with chart-worrying implications)! “Talk Of The Town” pops its clogs in the general direction of the ‘New Yorkshire bandwagon jumpers’ who got left behind on the platform when ‘the Emap Metro Career Train’ chugged out of town (London bound). Brass stabs, rasping vocals, enormo-chorus: THIS IS THE KIND OF RECORD WE NEED ON THE FUCKING RADIO! Are you listening, Zane Lowe? I’d like to see International Trust in the ring with a few of the mainstream’s current contenders! I’d love to watch them kick the fuck out of The Enemy, for a start!
