There are bands, right, that when they're good they're very very good. But when they're bad they're turd.
The Kooks have been speaking about their as-yet-untitled second album. OOOOH LAAAAA indeed Mr Pritchard, who told popular music magazine NME something like this:
"Listening to the first album reminds me how not to make the next one. We were just wrecked all the time and it shows. I'm itching to put the new songs out. I think the new record will be special as lyrically the songs are so much better. I wrote tracks like 'Naïve' when I was 16. I've improved so much and have got the best musicians to work with."
The Kooks' latest single - the one with the video in Paris - is proper shit. "Your pretty pretty petticoat"? Shit off you child-faced freak. Go read a book. The Very Hungry Caterpillar is pretty decent.
