Band : Sly Alibi

We humbly suggest you indulge to the full. We imagine they have already.

Band : Sly Alibi

A further seven-inch symptom, this, of that very Welsh condition, unorthodox pop excellence. Big Leaves are Wales' next most-likely-to, resembling as they do a fortuitous genetic accident involving Super Furry Animals, Gorky's Zygotic Mynci and the business end of Catatonia. 'Sly Alibi' offers us a crafty stomping melody, inspired falsettos, a little piano and an, um, intriguing (and timely, given the current GM food debate) chorus: "We plant the seeds/You bring the weedkiller/Oh yeah". We humbly suggest you indulge to the full. We imagine they have already.
