Our Single Of The Week is 'as fine a piece of noise we've heard this year'....More on
Backed by scabby live favourite ‘Suzy Lee’, ‘Dead Leaves…’ isn’t the most obvious choice for the final single from the ‘White Blood Cells’ LP; it’s darker than the cutesy-pie ‘Hotel Yorba’ and more sluggish than the just-add-water raucousness of ‘Fell in Love With A Girl’. But it’s as fine a piece of noise we’ve heard this year. We have no choice but to salute it's might and majesty.
