A nearly all-girl outfit who like a trashy, pouty three minute guitar-pop glam racket, marinade themselves in eyeliner, mascara, vodka and fag smoke, fire off pithy critiques of other bands with caps lock on and quote Bret Easton Ellis in a song title. Yes, Nicky Wire is a fan, why do you ask? No word on whether they favour the feather boa, but we haven't had a band like this for a long time. More Waitresses than Shampoo, they know what they're doing and have the nous to know the smartness behind playing quasi-dumb, smuggling smartly expressed feelings behind the snottiness and the "yeah yeah yeah!"s. They're the first band we've ever seen to cite Birdland as an influence. This will be their first single out some time soon and they have some London dates impending (1st June Buffalo Bar, 17th June Garage, 6th July Dublin Castle, 21st July Water Rats, 26th July Monarch). Best get on it.
