Bloc Party
Kangol hats all round: Bloc Party are ripping off another bit of the ’90s and we’re all going to sit here and listen to it because it’s innovative. That’s innovative, you hear? Cue four minutes of wailing from everyone’s favourite ‘cerebral’ band. But forget how hard they’re trying for a second and play it really loud. It’s like Mogwai covering ‘Set You Free’ by N-Trance and it’s brilliant.
