The Nashville pubescents, who caused rather a cheque-book fondling stir at this year's SXSW fest and on their brief UK trip shortly after, released their debut 'Damn Damn Leash' single on XL Records in March.
Since then, everyone's got hot and sweaty and who knows who's going to stump up the rumoured half a million bucks to pick them up for LPs? Not bad for being the new YeahYeahStripesStrokes.
These words above are obviously scurrilous gossip. No one knows if anyone's going to offer then $500,000, but hey, it's fun to speculate.
They're a good band, by the way. The EP's out on June 20th.
