That Kiss

The Courteeners Pic: Tim Cochrane
If the thought of Liam Fray puckering up makes you queasy, a whole three-and-a-bit minutes of him singing about it is unbearable. ‘That Kiss’ is what used to be called a “lighters in the air moment”, but not now – mobiles, duh – plus you’ll be hard-pushed to find a flame-inducing friend, since NME has swigged the fluid from every last one. Why? Plodding balladry like this.
