New Electrics : Get together

Well this is as daft as giving a frog a box of jam and crackers and telling it to build a scale model of the Notre Dame Cathedral complete with rococo gargoyles

Well this is as daft as giving a frog a box of jam and crackers and telling it to build a scale model of the Notre Dame Cathedral complete with rococo gargoyles, informing the little green fucker that otherwise you'll shoot his tadpoles, one by one, through the head. With a howitzer. Ha ha! Zany! Oh God. Yes, we're lost in a world of vaguely surreal comedy rock. And boy does it HURT. This was a Mark Radcliffe single of the week. Every single Mark Radcliffe single of the week ever has been total shite. What more could you possibly need to know? Imagine being locked in a room with Babybird, My Life Story, Chris Evans, David Devant And His Spirit Wife, The Divine Comedy, Jamie Theakston and Suede. OK, it'd be quite good if you could whip out a couple of Uzis and start spraying indiscriminately. But what if your guns jammed? And they all started performing at you!!!! The horror! The horror!
