Qui Est Le Futureheads

The Futureheads are a lot of things.

Early New Wave and Elvis Costello, with elements of The Clash, Devo, Fugazi, The English Beat, and the rhythmic perpetuation of The Knack two decades after the fact.

Indeed they have an interesting sound, with vignette-like 3 minute punk melodies... to appease even the most discriminating of IWasBored tastes.



Check 'em out.

Clearly I enjoy the look of my own words too much to consider silence.

not if we consider the Futureheads to be one entity--as in one band--singular, and not a collection of people, in which case, les would be appropriate.

Hmm....

Le Garage.

Right on Sweetest Thing... on both fronts.



I might also recommend Danger of the Water.

good call cujo

just saw them live a couple days ago and i thought their performance eclipsed that of the headlining band. good stuff indeed.

if anyone's interested, you can hear little clips of their songs on their site http://www.thefutureheads.com/

ones to check out: manray, meantime, and yes, their cover of hounds of love.

ecoutez et aimez!

that's an order

hahaha. i'm avoiding the futureheads based on the fact that i saw our music director wearing a futureheads shirt. he likes them, therefore they must suck.

i guess i could put my boycott aside and check them out, just for you, cujo

They remind me a lot of the Jam, which I see as a good thing. I've heard a couple of songs by them so far, and they're not too bad .

NICE.



Sadly, this endorsement thread is vastly outdated. I'm courting other bands now. Does no one read my life in print through Variety anymore!?!
