Now I really don’t know the back-story for this band but I remember seeing their record cover of a Brit with American flag boxing gloves and I was intrigued. Loud guitar glam from Brighton, UK influenced by The Jam and Sex Pistols with large feathered boas and unafraid to foppishly flaunt. I was taken aback at first listen but after a little while I “got it”. To me they are somehow even more British than Oasis (if that’s even possible). Upon unearthing this I found a fansite with demos and tons of other cool shite that I indeed plan on investigating further. I never did get their last album though I do have the single for it which sounds more like post-Bernard Butler Suede. To quote their fansite “a cruelly overlooked band, victims of the medias New-Wave-of-oh-please-just-fuck-off fad building, but still remembered with wide-pupilled glee by many, many sharp kid”.
