Shallow and unfunny third album from london boys

REVIEW: 31 Mar 2009

The World Was A Mess But His Hair Was Perfect

If single of the fortnight accolades were given for titles alone, there ain’t no song that would beat this. Unless it miraculously went head-to-head with The Wildhearts’ ‘If Life Is Like A Lovebank I Want An Overdraft’ of course. Thankfully, they merit the status on song alone. Originally written for a Dior Homme fashion show (brilliant!), the song is in the same vein as the strangely addictive ‘We Danced Together’. However there’s an understated class to it that lingers well after the ubiquitous spiky riff and deep, sexy vocals have lured you in. And it definitely has a fab title.
