I know this is probably a shameful thing to admit, but them playing Delta Sun Bottleneck Stomp on the tv a lot (what advert is it on?) made me whack in Deserters Songs for its first spin in about four years and it really is a glorious piece of music. This led on to See You On The Other Side, which is also fantastic but I can't find my copy of Yerself Is Steam anywhere, I think I've lost it. Disaster. I can't even remember any of Boces, that's going on next!
ANYWAY my point, this band used to be absolutely brilliant - what happened? Last time I saw them they were blurting out some utter tripe at All Tomorrows Parties 2005 in front of about 500 completely disinterested people while everyone else was raving one off to Aphex Twin downstairs. Is the latest album as bad as I think it probably is?
