The Displacements

Lazy Bones

The Displacements

Name that conjures up images of small town alienation? “Come on, then” swagger? Hard-Fi-style terrace-chant harmonies? Oasis/Verve producer Owen Morris making the guitars sound bigger than a house? Yep, The Displacements tick every requirement for ladrock success. Their big-hearted sincerity is endearing and the piratical

ska-pomp of the chorus is almost the original element they need, but you can’t shake the suspicion that they’ve just been pumped out of a factory somewhere in the Midlands with another 10 bands like them waiting on the conveyor belt.
