Dear Francis

Contrary fuckers, Chow Chow. Check this: they’re named after a breed of amusing, bear-like dog, yet their logo is a cartoon cat. Talk about mixed messages. Luckily, we’re on steadier, more reliable ground with their ace ‘Dear Francis’ – a skidding, stubbly slice of Pavemental, Sebadocious slacker-pop that’s 100 per cent proven to make Steve Lamacq spontaneously bust his skinny gut.
