Well, I said to the powers that be (Gawd bless 'em) send me something unusual to listen to. I'm so bored with U2esque riffs and coldplay whinging. I got the Brakes new single, I'm a happy bunny.

RING A DING DING captures all the joyful mad weirdness of Brian Eno and early Roxy music. I can't tell you how mush I love it, it's an absolute stunner. It's a wonderfully refreshing brand of lunacy. The CD includes the video for RADD, not only the music that's freaky, I can tell you. GIVE BLOOD is the name of the album, well just watch the film, shades of Monster Club (the 1980's Vincent Price movie, not the band)

JACKSON is a lovely slice of hoopy country it bounces along merrily. It can be found on the 7" and CD. SHUT US DOWN follows these two corkers on the CD version. It's pure Neil Young. Basically you can't go wrong with this diverse, quirky little outfit.
