The Displacements are a sprightly young bunch of upstarts from Leicester, resurrecting the Stiff Records legend (home of Madness, and all things Ska and two-tone, founded in 1976) and giving it new life with their brand of sleek, sometimes ska-esque, guitar pop ruckus. Live, The Displacements have as much sheen as The Killers, with seductive hooks and jaunty rhythm. For a band so young, they are one tight and profession unit. They've been tipped by one Peter Hook, and had glowing praise from ex-Factory Records' Kevin Hewick who said 'one day people will boast of seeing them in this magical early era'.
GIITTV's Miss Fliss had a chat with Nicholas Paul Eversfield whose role in the band is 'bass and occasional vocal cries' who describes himself as 'angry and great looking'.
