Album Review: The Suzukis - 'The Suzukis'

The Wigan quartet fall short

Referring to a band as “post-Oasis” is a bold move by anyone, not least a press release writer. It immediately splits your audience into two halves – the ’avin it few and the shelving it crew – that’ll make their minds up well before the CD hits the tray.

It sells The Suzukis a little short. There’s (just) enough invention and scuzz, oomph and almost-Cooper Temple Clause scruffy urgency across these 11 tracks to stand them distinctly against the Viva Brother camp. Although, when we say it sells them short, we actually mean about two bob fifty short.
