Shed Seven : Cry For Help
'Comeback' single on new label Artful finds the boys touting the same tired indie...
So we'll limit ourselves to observing that this tune will, sooner or later, soundtrack
some bittersweet cycling-related foible of Andrew Lincoln's in an episode of Teachers. Television soundtracks are the last refuge of the guitar scoundrel. If it's not bloody Jamie Oliver and his penchant for rousing, strumalonga mediocrity to chargrill to, it's Christing
Channel 4 and their preposterous assumption that today's teachers listen to cheery indie rock after a hard day's crowd control, before going out and selling their bodies to make ends meet.
Anyway: new line-up, same old same old. If you were a student in 1992, you might like it.
