When I used to flop around the floor like a disco fish it was to `Where's me jumper' by the Sultans of Ping or something by Pop Will Eat Itself, these days the kids will be bounding around to the sounds of `I'm not gonna teach your boyfriend how to dance with you' by the Black Kids or indeed anything from their debut album `Partie Traumatic'. Because without a doubt this is a fun record, a party record and a record you can dance to but it won't change you life. Yeah it sounds like The Cure in places, Human League in others there's even a dash of early Prince but it's also catchy enough that nearly all of the ten tracks could be a potential single and all will lodge firmly in your head after just one listen. Lyrically it opens up to you the more times you hear it and although some of the lines are dumb they are easily sing-along-able. A couple of the tunes here sound very similar but that is really a minor criticism of an album that overall is great. Indie-disco, nu-rave-pop or whatever you want to call it this is going to soundtrack your summer whether you like it or not so you might as well jump on board now. I'm not sure of the longevity of the band but as far as the right now goes these guys are it.

I've been lucky enough to hear this album in full and it's just as good as you wanted it to be from the first time you heard I Don't Wanna Teach Your Boyfriend... all that time ago. It's a true mix of styles and attitude, from the lo-fi indie of the aforementioned single to the more polished sheen of current single Hurricane Jane and instant hit of Hit The Heartbrakes. If you're a fan of the likes of The Arcade Fire, The Shins, Bloc Party, that sort of stuff then this is definitely for you.

Considering the amount of hype that has followed this band over the last few months you could perhaps forgive them for not meeting expectations with their debut album; 'Partie Traumatic'. Fortunatly for them and us listeners they have managed to exceed them, with an exciting an relentless ten track treat.
They seem to have manged to create an album jam packed with singles; 'I Want To Be Your Limosine' manages to revive disco and bring it bang up to date with it's funky baseline and sleazy lyrics. Singles 'Hurricaine Jane' and I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance' are of course stand out tracks and sit happily alongside the girating 'Look At Me When I Rock Wichoo' to name but one. This album is more than likely set to be the party album of the summer, all in all a fantastic debut from a promising new act.

The greatest compliment I can pay this album is it makes me yearn to be twenty-one again, downing Thunderbird, checking myself in the mirror, and singing along to this, as I get ready to head out into Friday night and the club where the dream girl/boy will be. It might not be much more than that, but isn't that enough?
Scott Walker when I get back, but that's another story...

It's not often that a band gets a backlash before they even release their first album but that's what Black Kids have unfortunately witnessed from some over skeptical critics. The truth is, if you listen to the 10 songs on this raucous indie pop album without attaching any unfounded expectation then you'll probably love it.

The band are obviously influenced by The Cure. 'I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You' and 'I'm Making Eyes At You' are reminiscent of 'In Between Days' and 'Close To Me' respectively. There's a few songs that sound a bit rushed but overall, Partie Traumatic is a fine debut effort.

It is 37 years since I bought my very first album and at last, hundreds of LPs, tapes and Cds later I have bought an album where I like every single track. This album makes no pretences, it is pure pop at its very best and I am sure Black Kids will go on to great glories. On the strength of the album my daughter and I went to their gig at Leeds Met Uni. It was packed,loud, fast and frenzied and everyone knew the songs! They can play and perform. Watch for them at next years festivals. Inote they are supporting Kaiser Chiefs on tour soon.I might go and duck out early before the predictable and boring main band come on!
