Late of the Pier
HeartbeatMore on Late Of The Pier
Starting off like Haircut 100, this morphs into ‘Mechanical Animals’-era Marilyn Manson, followed by The Strokes’ ‘12.51’ riff, then ‘There, There’ by Radiohead, through to MGMT and Gary Numan. Just when you think it’s over, Rage Against the Machine metal-funk appears with added cock-rock guitar. Thus it is everything ace ever, distilled into a pendant of liquid-pop platinum.
