A gang of teenage English dandy-goths with Mary Chain hair, and a nice way with the Hammond organ and a spot of feedback. Video director Chris Cunningham (Aphex Twin, Bjork) made his first clip in years for their song "Sheena Is A Parasite". Drawn from many genre threads, with a directly traceable lineage to Screaming Lord Sutch .
Arguable talent but undoubted charisma and a chaotic live show ensure fans and detractors of equal vehemence.
May I suggest for accompaniment Gregory Nicoll's short story, "Dead Air"?
