Music Non Stop(RCA)









Sweden's answer to Radiohead, apparently. And the question asked of the Scandinavian country by Radiohead to provoke this answer was, evidently, "Could you, for

our own entertainment as much

as anything else, provide us with

a mediocre facsimile of our own swooping glumness? Or do you

just do beer and flat-pack furniture?" And what an answer from the slightly crap Kent lads,

a bit like a disco Mansun, if that doesn't disturb the grey corridors

of your post-adolescent laboratory with the sound of raucous and incredulous laughter. Stretching

a telegram's worth of a notion

over an obligatorily epic four-and-a-half minutes, it's a hollow wail and no mistake. And bland? It's

like watching beige paint dry on Brian Molko
