Taffia : Nicky Wire Your A Liar
Pretty good.More on
Picked out of the singles drawer for pure comedy value, NME was not disappointed. Cardiff lads Taffia's effort is actually a Kraftwerk-ian slice of deep, deep house held together by a vocodered rant against the bar prices at the Manics' millennium gig. No we're not joking. Indeed, we're not sure which is the biggest achievement - coming up with delightful couplets like "£3 a pint may be OK in London, but here in Wales it's gonna get frowned on" in the first place, or the fact that the track is actually pretty good.
