I made a rediscovery of them the other day, digging out their album and loving it.
Soundwise, they're one of the coolest modern bands around. They hit it on the head in terms of production and everything. PERFECT.
Their image is a bit off though isn't it? They're obviously uninterested in how they look and only bothered about what they sound like, which seems like a good thing, but it'd probably hold them back from ever MAKING IT BIG.
I'd like to see them live. I once went to see them at Jabez Clegg in Manchester. Turned up at about 8.45 (since every band I've ever seen comes on at about 9) and they were doing their last song, so we stormed off to Big Hands in disgust. Are they any good?
