Things that are great about Rogues:
1 – They’ve been touted as a pop Foals, and are worthy of the tag.
2 – They ooze all the youthful exuberance of a highly strung member of The Wombats with none of the cringeworthy baggage.
3 – The frontman dresses like a cross between a scarecrow Bryan Ferry and Keith Richards*.
4 – Leather gloves make up part of their wardrobe, as does the hung-by-their-peanutted-ties look*.
Although you wouldn’t know these things from looking at their press shot.
The best thing though, is that they share a name with a Texan Renaissance bagpipe band. Google ‘Rogues MySpace’ and behold:
*These facts were surmised from one Monday night gig in Kilburn, north London, and may not be true of every performance.
