why have i only just listened to them?
theyre alrite i suppose, nothing special.
I've had a change of heart with these; I think they're quite good, they seem to have found one helluva drummer.
sadly he doesn't bring kate jackson with him.
i think they're a good, fun band. not life changing but capable of making my night.
Why everyone obsesses over her masculinity escapes me.
As for the band - I don#'t have much of a view. Not good not bad.
They have just been signed to Rough Trade. Their lyrics are deceptively clever too.
to be honest...
though my favourite songs tend to be their earlier stuff: autonomy boy, new idols... theyre more recent stuff just sounds way more polished... still good though.
Nothing special but really good fun !
why all the hype though??
all the hitchcock and 1950s tv play references make me warm inside.
There's a spohistication to their songs which isn't apparent to some folks at frst.
I'm still undecided as to whether they're going to sell any records. But I certainly hope so.
