This song sounds like Cast or something shit like that. The fact that they’re “weird” and that they write “sea-shanties” is neither here nor there, because this is the same old psychadelic crap that Kula Shaker belched, and that The Music are peddling as we speak. Fucking NME and its like for such bollocks. Trust me, in 3 years time they’ll be slagging them off to the same degree as they do Kula Shaker. It’s a well-worn pattern, my friend.
So in the meantime, we wait. They killed off NAM themselves, thank christ, and they’ll do the same with “Scallydelica” or whatever. Wonderful.
And they don’t sound like Captain Beefheart, you know. Captain Beefheart didn’t sound like Cast.
And The Stone Roses are shit.
And so is Dawson’s Creek.
