The Generalissimos start out all eighties pop on 'The Men behind the Man' with an excellent synth introduction that quickly descends into what sounds like a classic indie pop number. It's not a simple as that though, these dudes are harboring serious Elvis Costello/Dexy's Midnight Runners/Ian Dury and the Blockheads influences as the chorus is a real catchy stax/soul type thing with added saxophone and everything. The outro also reminds me of Super Furry Animals so you know these guys are serious about making a proper indie pop tune. Kinda reminds me of a lot of different stuff. On the B-side we have the Onions 'I want to be a dancer'. The first few seconds hint at a Glasvegas style sound but that is soon crushed by a lo-fi punk pop tune that sounds really quirky in its delivery. I like the guitar tones and the sixties do-wop vocal of the chorus. Again, it also sounds a bit like The Furries (TM).Very playful and adventurous with an awesome keyboard solo at the end. Ace.
