The Cooper Temple Clause/I Am Kloot/Aerogramme/The Futureheads : London Charing Cross Astoria
As The Cooper Temple Clause scurry stagebound and the aforementioned devotees go ABSOLUTELY FUCKING POSTAL, NME can't prevent a hard on of joy rising within its pants. So much bullshit rhetoric has been spouted about this six-headed beast of rock chaos that the simple facts of the matter need to be spelled out.

Another is crying tears of joy. It's been that kind of night. Coopermania indeed.
