An excellent debut that has warranted it's media hype, "Employment" contains a variety of songs that range from uptempo classics to heartbreaking ballads, all mixed with the original Kaiser funk. Originally a poorly rated band known as "Parva", the Kaiser Chiefs, named after Leeds player Lucas Radebe's former South African team, reinvented themselves to appeal to a much wider audience, outstanding the world with their debut single "I predict a riot", a comedic song about life in Leeds.

His impressions of famous celebrities aren't impressions in themselves, in fact he completely recreates them. All the impressions have a horrible case of Turet's, but this makes them all the more appealing. The frightening Yorkshire portrayal of Mel B, the long chinned Will Young, the balling Osbornes.
All these characters are good fun, overshadowed and presented by freaky, frightening, Transylvanian Avid. We know Transylvanians are… Read more
