Agent Blue are five punked-up teenagers from the not-quite-rock-mecca of Stoke On Trent. Like all good young bands, growing up in a small suburban environment has clearly had an adverse effect on them.
Being newly signed to the Universal label hasn't stopped 'Something Else' from being the high octane rock 'n' roll tune you'd expect of such young upstarts - if anything, it's probably made them that little more jumped up. Behind the Elastica-tastic riffs and Johnny Ramone hook, though, there's something ultimately missing. Perhaps it's not modern enough, retreading a wave of 80's punk, or perhaps there just isn't enough venom in the attitude. Either way, Agent Blue have got a little while to go before garnering some major attention.
