The Proclaimers with distortion pedals
please stop using them to make Glasvegas sound bad.
Glasvegas sound like the Proclaimers fucking the Jesus and Mary Chaim, but they sound so much like the latter that I cant really like them much as it's beyond just wearing their influences on their sleeves a bit. I think they're pretty good though...
Saying that is like saying the Sex Pistols sound like Phil fucking Collins. Yeah - they both sing in the same accent of their native countries. glasvegas have some very good songs which are a borrowing heavily from the 1960's girl band / Phil Spectatorish Wall of sound, Gerry And The Pacemakers type aesthetic sound welded onto a blatant rip off of Jesus and The Mary Chain. The album is a massive let down as I was expecting a tour de force. What we got was 50% very good, 50% background music.
