If encouraged I'll mention some more. :-)
Ready for my review? =)
They're *all* mighty good. I wouldn't give a thumbs down to any of them, by any measure, but my absolute fave is MFC Chicken -- I *love* the horns. Timeless fun, great musicianship; LIVE they must set the house on fire.
BTW, you posted MFC Chicken twice, and no Spivs, but I saw a Spivs song on the margin, so I listened to it, and they're my second runner-up. They're all that you say in your description. This is the Thee Spivs song I checked out:
Jim Jones and the Love Triangle are both hot, too (and I can see why our friend "dee dee" liked Jim Jones).
If this is what's trending in London for "new" music, I can see why you get pumped up about it. THANKS.
PS If you want to post a few more, go right ahead. Zilla's post card will arrive to you soon by special delivery ...
MFC Chicken are my favourite of the bunch too. "Timeless" is exactly right.....fun, party music. I see them play a lot and it's no exaggeration to say there are people from age 16 to 70+ at all their gigs.....Hipsters, Punks, Mods, every tribe....even old guys like me in jeans and t-shirts. Everyone dances and laughs. And they are songwriting machines at the moment. "Pocahontas" is their latest and greatest. This is a vid from last Sunday night: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3sRRzba4IY
