Move over Monkeys, LMT coming thru!
on 31 January 2007
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!
