Look For The Woman

A John Cooper Clarke for the Facebook generation (it says here), the Scroob continues to deliver highbrow meditations on love and life from his Hoxton pulpit (well, at least compared to The Enemy). This time, he divulges the contents of his diary over Dan Le Sac’s best breakbeat blues yet. “Over-thinking is the chink in my armour/That’s just what I do”, he burbles like Mike Skinner with a library card, torn between emotional commitment and the chance to play tonsil-tennis with his facial-topiary worshipping fanbase. Who said indie stardom was easy?
