Brian and me have had many a heated word about the Long Blondes over
the last year or so. He thinks they're all edgey whilst keeping that pop
sensibilty... whilst I think they sound just like Sleeper and encompass
that britpop sound from the mid 90's. This new single on Rough Trade called
Weekend Without Makeup proves me right and the chorus even has a faint whiff of Echobelly.
Seriously. Mind you we sell about 10 squillion of every release by this
band.... why the same folks don't buy Sleeper and Echobelly is a
mystery to me... This is great catchy indie pop which does nothing for me
whatsoever but if I liked this sort of thing I'd be throwing myself all over the
place like a proper dick. On 2 x 7" and CD......
