[a]Polak[/a] prove, that without having any great ideas, infatuation and passion can be enough...
Brothers Pete and Kryz Fijalkowski know about the failures of the best-laid plans having been involved in arch losers Adorable and The Bardots respectively. With Polak the polemics have gone and they're letting it all hang out tonight. The cool bastards are also sporting the best haircuts to grace the Monarch all year.
They're still a little Bunnymen fixated, but what they've kept is the Mac arrogance which saves them from being indie-lite invisible - especially on 'Nobody's Cowboy Song' and 'Get Out Of My Sky', which is a dizzy, sprawling dogfight. The rest of the set is pretty simple - a natural outpouring of the band's innate understanding of rock'n'roll.
