Read 'Diddy' Dave Simpson in the Guardian and you'd believe this lot were the future of rock and roll. Alas Tockwith's finest scribe is not always the best barometer of the new music emerging from the lowlands and highlands of this beautiful isle. So ignore him, and ignore The bloody Guardian - The Sun's music reviews on a Friday are much more accurate. This record is pathetic, guileless, ill-thought-out pop music devoid of ideas or tunes where the only thing Frankie say is 'Lets sound like a very, very limp Maximo Park'. Good sleeve though - it looks like the back streets around my Grandma's house. Buy it for the sleeve, throw the record away.

frankie & the heartstrings are a terrific band... how about taking your bizarre personal grudges elsewhere? Tit
2/10 Kevin Bassetit Customer review,
There's times over the last 20+ years where I thought indie music couldn't get any worse. Then the Arctic Monkeys came along and ruined everything. Merely by being fucking talented, Northern & tight. Not to say I like them that much, just that they set a new benchmark. The bench was called 'effort'. These guys got their fat retarded brother to come down, sit on the bench & break it, whilst smoking badly rolled fags & belching loudly - then you catch him attempting to retain a modicum of dignity during an agonising retentive denial of the hallowed turtle's head. Which soon escaped its nest. Sad. But true...If yer gonna be a shambling mess then at least be fucking interesting with it!!
