What a fantastic debut,
By A Customer
This review is from: Over the Counter Culture (Audio CD)
These cockney non-conformist opinionated indie rockers are pure class.
Even if you disregard the utter coolness of the band the album has so many ideosyncratic qualities that will set it out as a classic (i hope).
The album consists of 12 songs, the only weak one being Settle down, which is mediocre in comparison with the good songs. The opener 'Over the counter culture' is a great song, made even better by a super sexy trumpet solo at the end of the song. I love the cover of the specials 'Little bitch' suitably rocked up whilst remaining nicley odd. Songs such as 'Weekend Revolution' and 'Seaside' are also worth special mentions as fabulous tracks, and i havnt even mentioned any of the 3 singles which are also excellent, even if the album versions are not as good as earlier recordings.
Such a unique album and well polished for a new band is rare and this is definatly one of the best releases of the year.
