From London: epic power pop, drinking from the well of 70's Stranglers, Knack. Guys playing guitar bass drums and a touch of 70's new wave punk organ. But it's centered on the vocals: melody driven, subtle harmonies, songs feel like epic drunken pub singalongs. Appropriate that the cd starts w a snippet of one. The English'ness of such singing styles really shines through (and maybe thats what typified so much early English punk?). Great stuff fits w a garage set or an indie rock too.

8) (4:26) another waltz but dark and swingy
9)* (2:28) upbeat bouncing in your seat!
10) (2:57) swingy bouncy
11)* (4:59) chill organ to start then a big plodding feel a huge epic soaring vocal melody, picks up rockin in middle briefly, then back and forth
12) (3:10) a simple pretty song wo drums
13) (3:27) midpaced strummy simple 3 chord, very English feeling
