How very rock and roll! Another confirming nugget of your Mr Cool status. Sorry it's taken so long to get back to you. Been a bit rubbish lately. You're white-listed now though so comment away!
A long time ago...some friends and I ran a club night called Alibi in Camden's now gone but not forgotten Oh! Bar. We used to put on live Electro acts found via MySpace and guess which Kings Cliffe four-piece got in touch with us and played twice? That's right, Depeche Mode. No I'm joking. It was Fenech-Soler, thoroughly nice lads and it's great to see then getting somewhere in what must be a pretty tough industry.
Thanks for review... it's great. Although i think I'll still be buying the new album, the lyrcs are great. Although I second on your comment about their music sometimes being sad, but i guess it's the reason why they have such following is because a lot of folks relate to it. Great blog. Thanks!
Sorry for taking so long to approve this and reply. I've been snowed under and only just got around to updating my blog.
I'm writing a new review now ;)
I'm glad Oz is getting itself sorted. Stay safe,
Great review. You're selling records.... heard 'Clap your hands' on the local alternative music station and liked it but thought it sounded a bit 'Christina Aguilera" and now I know why! It's like an ear worm though, it just wiggles on in there and won't let you go. Will have to buy the rest of the album now. And if I'd known she was the Zero 7 vocalist, I would have already bought it!
Things are starting to dry out over here, by the way. Thank god. More rain due next week though. Wish us well.
Stay well G,
