Other good bands mentioned too.
The Kaiser Chiefs and Kooks are as indicative of British guitar bands as Maroon 5 and OneRepublic are of America. Bless 'em, but White Denim and Times New Viking are not about to make the new Is This Is.
i think there'll need to be far more mentions for any of these guys to really catch on. and a lot more content to the articles too. still, this is like grunge coming back or something, if you'd told me 18 months ago that Times New Viking would be in a national newspaper i'd have laughed up a lung.
I don't think the average Guardian Guide reader will go searching for Sex Vid 7"s after reading the article but it all helps.
I agree it is pretty weird about TNV getting mentioned in an article like that. Same with all the bands he wrote about.
it's interesting how the only interesting bands that he mentioned are ones that are unapologetically stuck in the early nineties.
Nothing wrong with that, but if its the 'kids' hes recommending these bands too there are more obvious choices
what are the more obvious choices?
I saw them a couple of times back in the day.
