7/10 according to our Clinton on 25th February 2014

Out of the wireless the other night came the oddest of sounds...the singing voice of David Gedge. Its gutteral northern bark totally and completely at odds with the slick tuneful radio crooners, scrubbed and tuned and affected. Crumplehorns completely evoke that gritty northern kitchen sink drama that made The Wedding Presen…view full details.

LP on Because Music. Their 'classic' breakthrough record. Whereas before they'd hinted at pop classicism amongst the housey electronics, here they penned a gorgeous love letter (ha!) to their homeland. The faux naive pop moves are on show throughout, opener (sort of) 'We Broke Free' is an absolute stunner. More consistent and smooth that the quirky 'Love Letters' it never quite reaches the dizzy heights but still deserves to be seen as one of …view full details.

Godspeed have always spoken through others. Our favourite anonymous band, their rise has been charted through phonies opening our eyes, nostalgics waxing lyrical, helicopter crews circling in; the nameless of North America, trying to stake their claim on it. The idea of them as a political band is just that: an idea. It is us who talked and list…view full details.
