For once, a band who instead of moping about onstage trying to cultivate disaffected indie cool, look like they absolutely fucking [I]love [/I]being up there...
The fact that they appear to have a mini-Norman Cook on bass and Alexei Sayle on sax hampers them not at all. They're in love with everything and just can't stop themselves letting everyone know.
