Any fans?

It's a band i've always known the name of, but never known much (anything) about. I assumed they were a ska band based on the name 🙈

Heard a track on Marc Riley's show last night and checked out their second album- Sulk- this morning. Great stuff.

Wouldn't be able to accurately describe them, but Baroque synth pop feels right in my head. But of course, you probably all know them well and I sound like a naive idiot.

they're amazing, an opera singer in an 80s indie band.
when billy mckenzie got dropped he asked the a and r guy in the meeting if they could get him a taxi home on their account, then took that taxi from TCOTU to his parents in dundee.

Hahahahahaah. Had never heard that.

I like the big singles, can’t say I’ve spent time with them beyond that. No denying the power of that voice tho
