The Courteeners
You would be mistaken (and a complete tosser to boot) to think that this is another band for Berghaus jacket-wearing teenage girls who love dirty tracksuit-clad builders. Or ‘Pigeon Detectives fans’ as we like to call them. No, The Courteeners are far better than that. And while this track isn’t as good as their previous NME Track Of The Week, ‘Cavorting’, it still feverishly grabs you by the danglies, climbs up your spine and slices itself deep into your cranium. If you ever dreamed of a band who combined the best bits of Oasis and The Libertines, then The Courteeners are your perfect wet dream.
