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.

If you like bands of the same style as Arctic Monkeys, this indie classic (but sadly underrated) album is almost certainly for you. Little Man Tate, a four-piece-group 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, particularly on the quirky and witty (not quite) love song 'This Must Be Love', 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, well-observed, and relatable lyrics, and this album certainly ticks all those boxes. The two big hits singles 'This Must Be Love' and 'House Party At Boothy's', are both engaging tunes and are my real highlights, along with 'Down On Marie', which has very clever lyrics, telling the story of one of the many young girls, the kind of which I knew, who pretend to be bisexual in order to make themselves appear more attractive to the guys.. Really though, there isn't a track on here that I ever skip pass, I was a huge fan of these men, and I still I am - the whole 'About What You Know' will always hold a special place in my heart, and on my iPod.

Lead singer Jon Windle, who has since released two solo albums, has a very prominent Sheffield accent, which is something I always find most appealing whenever I'm listening.

1. Man I Hate Your Band
2. European Lover

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.
