imagine a band who fuse three part harmonies with scalding post-punk guitars; floor-filling bass lines with syncopated rhythms and lyrics about everything from high-school massacres to r&b lotharios musing on their lot in a post-apocalyptic wilderness. not easy, is it? but then everything everything (jonathan, jeremy, mike and alex) aren't here to make life easy. they're here to challenge every knee-jerk convention of indie rock and dance on the grave of pointless retrogression. 'man alive' is an album reaching so high and challenging so many standards that it could signal a seismic shift in british music. think the talking heads through a sega megadrive, or broken social scene scoring a laser fightgrand. multi-directional pop albums like this should only really arrive once the debut is out of the way, making 'man alive' all the more incredible.
