"I want to be held for 48 hours. Tenderly. By the police."

Superqueens

"THIS isn’t a camp combination of post-clubbing hi-NRG hits. This isn’t a trendy take on mullet-streaked electronica either. No, Cheap Shots is a helluva lot weirder than that.

Released on rising local label Skinny Dog, Superqueens are two Northern blokes focused on the realities of everyday life.

Vocalist Michael Conroy Harris rants about spending cash ‘on comic truths’ (‘Gothametropolis’) over the hiss and crackle of tape whilst Salfordian Bruce Magill provides the electro drop kicks.

If you think Mike Skinner is the voice of the streets, wake up and sniff the cider-soaked paving slabs, because Cheap Shots is a perfect snapshot of the claustrophobic city.

It’s hard to follow the stories as Conroy Harris’s mind fails to work along linear roads.

But ‘The Silent Poolstar’s Lass Won’t Say Hello’ is almost like the outline of a Ken Loach film - a backroom pool table, clogged with clouds of cigarette smoke, is the setting for strange sexual tension.

Backed by simple percussion, ‘Serving Suggestion’ swipes sideways at religion and ‘Security and Peace’ is a sonnet to crime and punishment: ‘I want to be arrested by their heartbreaking honesty…’ he says as though possessed by Christopher Eccleston in a BBC drama.

For all its slow, brooding sounds, it’s certainly not a comfortable listen.

There’re no hooks, no real tunes, no real light-hearted moments - instead this is all about bravery and poetry, much like real life."

Yep, before I Am Kloot...when we saw those weird dancing girls...Troupe.

OH MY GOD. Look what I just found!!!!


http://www.manchesteronline.co.uk/en...r_trouper.html
"LAST year’s winner of the Manchester heat of the UK Air Guitar Championships was Kiki, also leader of the all-female dance group Troupe, who supported I Am Kloot on their recent tour.

After injuring her leg last week during a particularly energetic air guitar photoshoot, it looked like Kiki would have to miss this year’s Manchester date. Instead, she found an ingenious way to incorporate her crutches within the performance.

Now, as she prepares to become the first person ever to study the subject at PhD level, she tells her own air guitar tale to ManchesterOnline."


I SO want a PhD like that.

I'm bumping this thread because they've got a new album coming out, and you can now listen to songs on their MySpace and their website.
