In which Robbie and Milo pilfer the weirdest Number Two record ever – Laurie Anderson’s eight-minute ‘O Superman’ – and wind it into something warm and fuzzy about, like, friendship and dreaming and stuff. The Big Pink’s mission to turn Dalston cynicism into positivity is laudable, but… I dunno, who else hears a band so coldly ambitious they’d blend a bag of kittens if it added a bit of lift to the chorus?
