For those of us still waiting with baited breath for that yet-to-materialise Meg White solo album (and we are surely legion) there’s always Correcto, perhaps most noteworthy for featuring Franz Ferdinand’s skin-tickler-in-residence Alex Thompson, although strictly speaking the brainchild of frontman Danny Saunders.
To that end, Correcto are substitute teachers difficult to warm to completely, purveyors of a post-punk sound that’s dated as it is flabby around the paunch. ‘Do It Again’ is plenty catchy, mind, yammering away on the first chord like a naughty child stomping on roadkill or, less stupidly, like Wire coming off second best to The Damned’s unassailable ‘New Rose’.
More post-pub than post-punk, then, but even that’s not without its kebab-reeking pleasures.
