Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

They're good clean fun. "I don't like doing things that other folks tell me to do, so I hit him with a hammer, and now he's quite subdued". Well, clean-ish at any rate. The Rumble Strips are a real anomaly in a nation where jeering at talent show rejects is the pastime of choice. Relatively image-free, they carry nostalgia for an England of yore where boys could carry conkers in their coat pockets, sip at shandy on special occasions and be happy with their lot, without crossing over into the realm of novelty. Their reliance on thrifty rhythmic foundations, strong vocals and chipper horn arrangements originally places them somewhere between The Housemartins, Madness and Dexy’s Midnight Runners, whilst also charging through the kind of frantic, ruffled songwriting that Razorlight thrived on before the lure of the arenas stubbed that right out. Charlie Waller is a terrific lead vocalist too, and never short of reams of witty, wholesome lyrics. Girls and Weather creates a world where singing about wishing your bike was a motorcycle ("Motorcycle") and lying on your back staring at the clouds ("Clouds") really is good enough. When hammered out with the kind of eccentric panache familiar to patrons of the Mystery Jets, of course it is. --James Berry

4.0 out of 5 stars Dexy's 21 Sep 2007
Format:Audio CD
OK let's say it up front - this album owes a lot to Dexy's Midnight Runners BUT it is still a cracking good album. It's a joyful burst of sunshine for the end of a dreadful summer, the singles are great and "don't dumb down" has the makings of a classic. Take a chance on this - you may not be listening to it in 20 years time but you'll be listening to it next summer at max volume while driving down to the coast....especially if the sun decides to shine!

These guys are nosing around the fringes of the top 40, not quite the next big thing but certainly contenders. The sound is guitar pop with brass and the odd bit of pub piano. There are some stand out songs here - catchy tunes, memorable lyrics - and the rest aren't too bad either. Motorcycle is good, Alarm Clock is good, Girls and Boys in love is good. The one about clouds is quite cute too. Yes, there is a debt owed here to Dexy's and the Zutons, and maybe the Cure too, but these aren't bad reference points at all and in general this is a hoorah for Brit indie pop.

And by the way, if you get a chance to see them live, then I'd recommend it. They are full of life and energy, and utterly chaotic. Brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Band, Excellent Album 26 May 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is a great album and definitely a must buy, shame they don't get as much publicity as some of the stuff out there, a lot of which is a load of ****.

Anyway, if you do one thing on Amazon today, buy this album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, pleasing and generally a great album 21 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD
When I ask my freinds and family if they have heard of "The Rumble Strips" most of them shout "who??" at me. This dissapoints me because for such a good album I wish they would get more publicty and respect. I only heard of them myself after booking my ticket for a festival and seeing their name on the list. I am now so pleased there going.

I was instanley addicted to songs like "Time" and "Girls and Boys in Love" which just got me up singing or dancing to their awesome tunes. After a couple of listens to the album, I can honestly say I haven't found a bad song. "Motorcycle", "Hate Me (You Do)" and "Don't Dumb Down" are my latest favourites. Some of the songs, especially "Time", makes me think that there inspiration could be from a band like "The Killers". It's just an album full of joy, excitment and a sence of being happy as you listen.

It's not gonna be in the top ten bestsellers for a while, but if you want an album and a band which is fresh and lively, then get out your wallet because The Rumble Strips are perfect for you.
