Hoping that maybe you will and wishing someone would, the Kooks have named their fourth record -- their first in three years -- 'Listen'. Britpop dudes with questionable and possibly made-up accents, the Kooks return with an interest in making their sound shinier and less indie rock: frontman Pritchard decided to enlist Soundcloud producer and hip-hop artist Inflo for the record, so there are certifiable beats on this record.

1/10 Chris Jameson 9th December 2014
I have happily taken Clinton's advice. I heard a song of theirs several years ago, I don't ever wish to hear them again.
I was on my way to a gig in Leeds earlier this year when i noticed a youth with a haircut and silly jeans walking with a bunch of similarly idiotically dressed youths (you know the sort) drop something, it was a ticket. I caught up with him & handed it to him & he didn't have the common decency to thank me. I was quite pissed off and considered making some sort of sarcastic comment to the ill mannered little scrote but was instead very grown up about the matter. He had paid money and appeared to be looking forward to spending an evening in the company of people like him watching and quite possibly enjoying the bloody Kooks. I, on the other hand spent the evening in the company of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.
Why hasn't David Bowie sued?
