4.0 out of 5 stars Now I've Found You, I Can't Lose You 15 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
It's amazing the things you can discover when you just take a chance on an album, drawn to this album owing to it's cutsey thing i knew i was onto a winner when i saw they'd thanked Bearsuit in their credits...
Help She Can't Swim sound like Sonic Youth assaulting an indie band but in the best possible way. Shouty boy girl vocals and an agressive attitude to their music and witty sharp observational lyrics that all 'scene' kids can relate to. Quick, get your hands on this album before hype does...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic shouty indie noise. 20 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD
I love this band so much, the singing sounds potentially quite annoying but they're very, very good so it didn't bother me at all.
They seem to hate a lot of things... "No one cares about your DJ night/Shut it" - Fermez La Bouche "God bless the music press/I can't believe you're not bored of it yet." - Are You Feeling Fashionab and the rhyming celebrity name yelling at the end of Bunty vs Beano is classic. "Michael Winnner/Frank Skinner... Ashton Kutcher/Frank Butcher".
An all round fantastic indie-pop album. Great artwork as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Energy and imagination 2 Feb 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Great album (discovered browsing the listening posts in a Tokyo HMV - and yet no such promotion over here in England) that's mining the current Eighties-inspired spiky guitars-with-synths crossover (thank you Smiths/Cure/Gang of Four/Joy Division) but with more edge, wit and energy than Franz Ferdinand, Killers et al. The music's faster and louder and the band make really good use of their male/female dual vocalists which gives the album an interesting variety as you run through the songs. Best thing of all though are the lyrics - pretty damn excellent and very funny: how about a chorus that runs 'You dance like your dad at a disco, What would Morrissey say?'. I don't understand why this band aren't being hyped to the stars. Buy this album now then tell your mates about it.

4.0 out of 5 stars The British Pretty Girls Make Graves? 8 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is a very cool album, this band take influence form off kilter bands such as pretty girls make graves, mix it up with some new wave keyboards and add lyrics that make observations / take the mickey out of British culture - imagine Morrissey was from Essex and liked to get drunk rather than mope around and you are somwhere near close.
The dual vocals, imaginative lyrics and the individual style of this group really makes them worth worth listening to so go and get yourself a copy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Album 8 out of 10 3 Dec 2004
By R. Byrum - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I'll breka this odwn since nothign is on here for this great album.

01. Fermez La Bouche - The album starts off with a bang of British punk in this fast rocker, that runs 1:38. One word describes it... Frantic. The guitars are fast, the singing is fast and bombastic like the Beastie Boys, except high pitched British voices, not Brooklyn dudes.

02. I Don't Need You - This 1:51 track has more roots it seems in Death metal, with one singer (I dunno their names yet...) screams the chorus "I Don't Need you, no I don't need, I Don't Need You, Now I Got Me!" Meanwhile the other singer is doing fast lyrics remenscent of No Doubt's Ex-Girlfriend. This track's guitars remind me of Queens of the stone age in terms of riffage, but they sound like they use Fender's or another Single Coil based guitar. Giving it a more European sound to it.

03. Bunty vs Beano - This was a single off the album, kinda similar to the song before, and only 2:09. One of the albums best songs.

04. My Own Private Disco - Great! It starts with a humming bassline and some nice synthesizers. Really nice song, but like the rest of the albuma tad bit frantic sounding.

05. Starts of slow for this 1:53 track, thens uddenly it starts yelling and screaming and the riffs start ripping. It's great the chorus is them screaming "WE ARE SENSITIVE..." etc. Very funny.

06. What Would Morrissey Say? - Great song, my favorite I think on the album, it is their slowest and their song with the most instrumentation... with great synths in it. This song is only 1:54.

07. Yr the One - Great groove, made with keybaords and bass, kinda odd sounding using various sound effects to make the beat.

08. Are You Feeling Fashionable? - Kinda reminds me of early Ramones material at first, one of the most punkish songs on the album. Has soem nice instrumental bits in the 2:44 track. Nice.

09. Boy Toy - One of my least favorite tracks... Think No DOubt mixed with Yoko Ono. It is only 2:04 luckily.

10. The Dance Party Turned into a Wake - Great riff opens it up kinda reminsiecent of AC/DC, then the band comes in and you know it is them and their sound, more guitar work similar to Queens of the stone age throughout this track. Includes some Robert Plant type moans for the chorus, nice touch.

11. Apples - longest track on the album at 3:56. And the slowest, although still fast by most bands standards. Nice words. Great closer.

Overall the labum is good but it sounds like a european version of No Doubt on Speed, alot of speed. The reason their sogns are so short is because they play them soooo fast. If they played them normal speed they'd be your usual 4-5 minute songs. And even though the songs are so short you dont really realize they are until you look at a clock. I recommend for any British music fan looking for something other than BritPop.

i only bought this record (by a band who seem to be scared of capital letters, hence the complete lack of them in this review) because they were on the same label (fantastic plastic) as ikara colt, i'd never even heard a second of their music before buying the album, but it certainly didn't disappoint. only about 25 minutes long, but you don't realise without checking, and certainly don't feel short changed. the sound is chaotic but appealing, the two singers' voices grating against each other slightly. at times there's less singing and more yelling, even (especially?) from the first track, fermez la bouche, which really sets the tone. either 'my own private disco' or 'what would morrisey say' is the stand-out track, both fantastic. 'apples' closes the album, and is the slowest track of the lot, though still quicker than you'd ever get from most bands.

i'd recommend anybody to try this, although probably try before you buy, as it's a sound that you'd either love or hate.
