The first band ever to be shitter than the road they’re named after go all TLC flamenco soppy, perhaps having realised how damn unpretty they are at last. Roll on GGGGGareth I say. For some minutes this reviewer was striken with blind panic, believing from the cover shot that A1 have evolved the ability to reproduce without females and the entire country would soon be over-run with squeaking, over-earnest Morton Harket mini-mes. Then I was informed there’ve always been four of them. Phew, maybe I’ll call off the culling team in the morning…
