It bloody would backfire on you if you played this at the disco an’ all [Not been to many indie discos recently then, Cashmore? – Ed]. ‘Backfire At The Disco’ is a tale of a date gone horribly wrong, something of which I’m sure the various Wombats have vast reservoirs of experience, and it is horribly tinny, underfed indie piffle full of inexpensive guitars and irritating “woo-woo-woos”. “It’s three o’clock and I’m feeling shite”, sings Matthew Murphy at one point – well, he’s clearly one of those people who believes that the way to relieve one’s misery is to spread it to other people.
