It's the Young Knives, but not as you know them

The Young Knives have been noticeable by their absence recently, but on tonight’s evidence they having been laying about idle. There’s two brand new slabs of jitter-punk brilliance and Henry Dartnell even finds time to call his brother House Of Lords a ‘bag of shit’. Forget Oasis, The Young Knives have got sibling rivalry, and their future, sewn up.
