Adopted Sheffield sons Champion Kickboxer have their debut CD out this week. On esteemed Steel City label Thee SPC, this fragile & underrated band twist the best bits of Teardrop Explodes, Gorky's Zygotic Mynci, Field Music & Super Furries into new shapes to create a bizarre & understated wall of bendy indie music. CK are supremely adept at marrying some gorgeous otherworldly vocal harmonies (all of them sweetly sing so screw The Futureheads etal) with cheeky stilted discordance & warped chord progressions to test the casual listener. They were never gonna be an immediate band these 4 chaps. It's just so heartwarming to hear a bunch of young guys willing to take risks on their debut album. Dig deep for the satisfying rewards this CD, 'Perforations' yields. I feel an air of  magic from this CD that I got with the Tunng albums. There's very little folk but just as much hidden treasure & levels of softly layered soul to be found, revealing itself with each tender play. Yes, hopefully these'll be revered long after The Long Blondes have children & get fat.
