You Do Something To Me (GoodBehaviour)







Tours with Robbie, appearances on every kids' TV show you might care

to mention, you get the impression that indie-rock's underachieving post-Britpop

massive gaze jealously up at Dum Dums and murmur that they're "trying too

hard". But dagnabbit if 'You Do Something To Me' isn't another

picture-perfect four minutes of jaunty powerchords, heavy-rotation horns and

subtly acerbic lyrics that pretty much deserves every form of success that comes

its way. No matter how much bassist Steve Clarke's Hoxton-skunk haircut

makes you want to hate 'em, Dum Dums are impossible to dislike.
