Ah, British party bands with synthy swells and danceable beats. Add Reading's Does it Offend You, Yeah? to the list. And, if you like Bloc Party's interpretation of The Cure, with bit parts of Justice and Daft Punk thrown in, you'd probably dig this amalgamation. I've listened to the record a bit, and it ranges from excellent electro-pop dance riotz to straight-up cheeseball jagged synth-pop. Which makes it damn good fun (shit storm, commence). Why they're playing 12th & Porter is a mystery to me—this is the first booking in recent memory there that's even piqued my interest.
