Album Review: Cats On Fire -'Our Temperance Movement'
Eighties indie revivalists can't bring the past to life
The Smiths’ catalogue they borrow liberally from The Housemartins, Orange Juice and Belle And Sebastian,
but they lack the intensity and energy of their influences. It’s a shame, as Björkas’ acerbic lyrics deserve more.
If only their music had some of the feline flame of their name.
