Product Description

Product Description

2007 debut album from Yorkshires finest is a masterclass in autobiographical storytelling, oozing heart and soul, the album is full of true stories and a cast of colourful character s, combining a touch of Steel City realism with a healthy does of suburban hedonism, 11 tracks including the singles House Party At Boothys, Man I Hate Your Band and Sexy In Latin. V2.

Amazon.co.uk

You can teach attitude for interviews, you can stage and tweak it expertly for photo shoots, but Little Man Tate – and particularly gobby frontman John Windle – don't leave it that long. "Don't talk to me about money, don't talk to me about fame, don't tell me about your lyrics because your songs are all the same," he chirrups intently, taking out most of his peers in one fail swoop seconds in, "you've got to understand, man I hate your band!". His uncorked belligerence is infectious, driven hard by that honest, witty northern twang previously heard rebounding off the likes of I Am Kloot, The Cribs and, yes, yes, those Arctic Monkeys. His gall at ripping apart the London A&R scene's pretentiousness on their opening three and a half minutes has surely won more friends than it might had it not been attached to such a belter of a tune.

As right as he might be, he's probably not entirely immune to its criticisms. They slam into the record with such a head full of steam and testosterone that they were always bound to be winded by the end of its 11 tracks. But while it lasts it really is enormous fun. The choruses to 'European Lover' and 'Sexy In Latin', and the holler-along outro to 'House Party' are furiously sweet like a confectionary box featuring The Jam truffles, brandy snap Buzzcocks and mostly Libertines choc chip creams. Not exactly for savouring, hardly a delicacy, more just treats to chomp right down. --James Berry

Another four-piece band from Sheffield producing indie-rock to the masses. The story may sound similar, and to the average music hearer, they may just appear to be a sound-a-like to the "Arctic Monkeys", but in reality the two bands vary considerably.

Little Man Tates lyrical content is often about the following, "Sexual nature, Rock, and Parties!"

Sexual nature can be seen in "Down on Marie", about a woman who was previously lesbian, but then converts to bisexual, and Jon's experience of a threesome.

"Court Report" is about a transvestite who's also a hooligan. Great lyrical content such as "He dishes out a kick-in with a thong under his jeans" and "He's gonna score some trouble with blusher on his face"

I could talk about every song, but then I will ruin the suprise for you when you listen to this record. In general this album is immense, It contains much more complex solo's to that of Arctic Monkeys, without being over-the-top or too much.

I've seen this band twice live (Leeds festival and Loughborough University, both of which were amazing performances)and with both sets they deliver their material with enthusiasm and full on banter. They look natural on stage and you can tell they love every minute of it. I even got to meet them after. They're modest down-to-earth lads.

I prefer this album to "Whatever ppl say i am thats what im not" due to its more comical lyric content and catchier riffs. Even if you hate the Arctic Monkeys with a passion (like my flatmate does!), when I took him to go see LMT live, he loved it and thinks they are a "Top tip for the future".

You should buy this album not just because its amazing but quite simply because they're from Yorkshire, and you know it will rock your world! It's inevitable that these already 6ft tall musicians will turn into giant superstars with the release of this record alone. Tell your friends before they tell you!

I think some of the reviews are a bit harsh, it is true there is a "sound" they fit into as identified by other reviewers but hey music is a genre thing. For sheer energy and enthusiasm this is a top album- irritatingly catchy at times (speaking as someone who finds sexy in latin running through the head in dull meetings). The lyrics are witty, its a much more up beat "young and partying" album than some of their contempories are producing- no northern anxt for the lads. If you fancy a sing along in the car, turn it up loud and have a good time album take a look

It's rare that I buy an album where I love each and every song as much as the last, and I was pleasantly surprised when I bought this one. I had heard other songs of theirs, and thought they were great, so when I bought the album and heard more of their music, I wasn't let down. Some of the lyrics are genius, and I would recommend this album to any fan of Indie, Rock or Alternative music.

Format: Audio CD
One of many bands to hone their skills by continuous live gigging, coming from the Steel City and thus drawing inevitable comparisons to other more or less successful Yorkshire bands, Little Man Tate have managed to create a sound both familiar and fresh. What can only be described as bluesy guitar indie-pop, with solid rhythms and noticeable basslines, is enlivened by zeitgeisty lyrics which hold a mirror to the youth of today, who party, have uncomplicated sex and booze the night away - sometimes at the same time, sometimes while falling in love.

The music will remind you of a million songs you've heard before, but that familiarity never resolves into a full-blown sense of deja-heard - in so doing, they are tapping creatively into a collective wealth of sounds from the postpunk era to the Manchester golden years. The lyrics and the apparent guilelessness of the singer's voice may make the wannabe sophisticated listener cringe, but behind the cover of simply writing 'About What He Knows' there is a combination of sharp observation, social critique for the playground and a deep well of sympathy for those outsider characters, the crossdressing football hooligan ('Court report'), the girls who pretend to bisexuality to make themselves attractive to boys ('Down on Marie'), abandon their boyfriends to go travelling ('European Lover') or live for the weekend or a one-night stand ('This Girl'). There is also first love ('Sexy in Latin', 'This Must Be Love') and an interesting diversion into Heat-magazine characters ('Who Invented These Lists', 'Little Big Man').

This is feelgood music that doesn't let go, from start to end.

If you like the Arctic Monkeys, this album is probably for you. Little Man Tate, a four-piece-band from Sheffield only stuck around for four years, but they released two good albums, and had a handful of hit singles. The sound is similar to that of Alex Turner's group at first listen, but when you spin 'About What You Know' around a few times, you'll find that this guys did have their own style. I love simple, feel-good indie rock music with catchy hooks and witty lyrics, and this album certainly ticks all the boxes. The singles 'This Must Be Love' and 'House Party At Boothy's', both nice tunes are my highlights, along with 'Down On Marie', which has very clever lyrics.
