These three brothers from Wakefield have certainly got about over the last decade or so creating a homely niche for their dynamic and energetic guitar music. In the Belly of the Brazen Bull was their first album following the departure of ex Smith Johnny Marr (whose hair the brothers must have been in total awe of) and sees them collaborate with producer Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev et al). The luxury 2LP version includes a bonus 7" of further material from the era.

How refreshing to hear new music that reflects the rough edge of Nirvana, melodies of The Pixies and attitude of The Ramones (and hairstyle of Johnny Ramone to boot!).The album is sincere, thoughtful, angst-ridden, passionate, and poetic. The scraggly, experimental bits at the end are my favourites. There is an honesty in their music that is paired with real technical skill and that's a rare combination. Some very genuine artists are not talented musicians. Some very talented musicians create artificial music. The Cribs are the real thing. I hope they stay around for a few more decades.
