Johnny Foreigner - Le Sigh

Depending on which reading of their discography you adhere to You Can Do Better, out 10th March on Alcopop!, is either JoFo's fourth, fifth or ninth album. They still sound well on it, anyway. This starts by sounding like it's going to be one of their reflective moments. Then it thinks to hell with that and accelerates in the way only they can. Beyond that, the usual rush of taxi thoughts and strafing guitars, including at least one direct reference to lost kids in Birmingham indie clubs as standard.

Dates! Almost all with Radstewart, who in their incessant touring with bands we like seem to have become 2014's answer to Copy Haho.
