The Films
Oh, but yes. Fantastically spiky, quintessentially English smart-rock (which is slightly confusing, given that they are actually from Denver, US of A) with pleasingly raw, itchy guitar riffs and a pleasingly disdainful vocal (“He’s looking for another space/But I’m going to put him in his place/With charm and grace” being a particular zinger). If you are the subject of this marvellous song, you should probably be aware that The Films don’t much care for you and your highfalutin ways.
