Good Shoes: All In My Head
Indie melting pot churns out shag-free classic
You worry in this purple patch that all the good new bands are going to dry up. No fear with these London teens – this is ace: like all the best bits of the indie nation put through a blender and then remoulded into a better song than most of them would manage to do together. The rockabilly postures of Vincent Vincent And The Villains, the air-tight mentalist tempo changes of the north east art-rockers and the punk-rock chaos springing up all over the country. Further proof of their champs-in-waiting status comes from genius lyric: “I’m a good shag, but I find nobody fit”. We know, NME gets that all the time; it’s a right pain, innit?
