They're British, that song is a good reflection of their sound, their album is quite enjoyalbe, you really should have used the band index.

I think the concept of the band index is wasted on a lot of people

I don't know if I could repeat it here. That would be wasted too.

Here's an excerpt I posted in the 2354366th Killers thread:
Quote:
At the top of this forum, there is a very nice thread called: B&C Band Index. It's even marked important, so it must mean something I think. It even says PLEASE READ between brackets (and in proper capitalisation, which I only changed for emphasis purposes)
If you can't find it, here's the link: http://forum.interference.com/t115814.html

In it you find links to the most recent threads about a certain band.

This isn't a personal jab at you, don't worry.

Has anyone noticed recently a lot of British bands mistaken for being American? I've met lots of Americans [online] who all thought Zeppelin, Floyd, Radiohead, Coldplay, Franz Ferdinand were all American...but I honestly have to say there is a great difference in style between US and UK groups and haven't actually seen a US group/artist that I thought was English beforehand, except Scissor Sisters who don't seem to be having quite the same impact over in the states.

Okay, I used the damn band index but this thread is actually more about the band index than the band I want to talk about.

Anyway, so I've gone completely ga ga over "Black Dollar Bills", thanks to HeartlandGirl. Will I like a whole record?
