JACK PENATE is a bit all over the place at the mo. You can't move for him. His new single Spit At Stars is a jaunty affair which reminds me of Jamie T,. Billy Brag and some old style jangly indie pop music. Nowt new or exciting if you ask me.... heard it all before....

Jack Penate specialised in an irritating style of indie pop that was prevalent during the mid to late 2000s. The formula went like this: get a telecaster, listen to a shit load of the Smiths, Wire, and Talking Heads, get a simple chord progression and make it as alternately rockabilly or jagged as possible (to make it seem "intelligent"), spew your thoughts with little or no editing in a mockney accent and just wait for mid-to-large indie label to snap you up. Spit at Stars, taken from Penate's debut album Matinee, follows such a formula. He reaches for profundity with the chorus "We all spit at stars", but it comes off like a pound-shop car sticker slogan instead. Shite.
