Which would make Malluka entirely pointless, were it not for the fact that Brian Molko currently resides in Rocky Horror rehab, recovering from an overdose of bombast, a dangerous case of narcissism, and a serious deficiency of good tunes. Over this seven-track mini-album, though, Malluka, demonstrate that they do it rather well, careening from the starting blocks with the incandescent teenage riot of 'Tupelo', chattering in gothic tongues on 'Strait-Jacket Tailor', and cruising serenely towards a cloud-strewn horizon on 'Boat Song', as the wind whistles around their cheekbones.
So, in the fine tradition of Fierce Panda releases, another agreeable blast of fun, formative thrills. Next year, Malluka might be pondering double-disc concept albums ` la Ultrasound, or boasting to their kohl-eyed captive audience about the pleasures and pitfalls of sex, drugs, and glam-rock. Catch them young.
