4.0 out of 5 stars Those kids can Rock!, 27 Aug. 2007
This review is from: Bring It On (Audio CD)
I bought this album back in 1998 after hearing here comes the breeze on a Q magazine compilation CD. I was startled and baffled after listening to the 1st track and looking at the band photo in the album sleeve.....5 lanky students produced this masterclass!? its unfeasable!
The album's psychadelic opener Get Miles Away picks up where the Stone Roses left off with mind bending wah guitar and bluezy interludes. Its incredible how a small group of 19 year old students can sound like a blues/spiritual band from the 1930's, helped immensely by the vocal harmonies shared by a Gravelly voiced Ben, and 2 other strong singers.
The band also meld in odd vynl scratches and samples and some tinny electronica sounds as heard on the lead single Whippin Piccadilly.

However dont think that this is all experimental genre blending, the band are perfectly capable of Rocking out as heard on Love is Better than a Warm Trombone and the psychadelic swirling finisher Ries Wagon.
Overall this is one of the best debuts of the 90's and has enough originality to sustain its influences (something many indie bands of the 90's didnt have!). I highly reccomend this to music fans.
