With their bigger and better second album, London-based indie/dance band Boxed In have earned their breakout moment
Red Hot Chili Peppers : London Highbury Garage
Could become one of the all-time great 'brown' bands...
As well as playing all the hits - 'Give It Away', 'The Power Of Equality' - the Chilis run through their next single 'By The Way' and three other new songs ('Universally Speaking', 'I Would Die For You' and 'Don't Forget Me') which all sound as good, if not better, than anything on their underrated 'Californication' album. The new songs are kinda Brit-poppy and kinda 60s pop-ish, but proof that, if they manage to stay clean for another couple of years and keep writing songs as good as this, The Red Hot Chili Peppers could wind up being one of the all-time great 'brown' bands.
