"Landfill Indie" was an OK term that described a lot of bands, but like most musical catch-alls it was picked up on by the Sunday Supplements and became as over played as the acts it described. This being said I couldn't think of a better way to describe the title track of The Chemists new single.
The B side "Sooner or Later" almost faired better, starting off with a lovely up tempo ska tinged feel, reminiscent of early Jack Penate or The Maccabees, but ends with nothing of the clever lyrics or charm the other acts mentioned possessed.
Seeing a remix by Tom Bellamy of label mates White Belt Yellow Tag, former guitarist of the anything but landfill Cooper Temple Clause I had some hope, but it just sounds like a really bad Cooper Temple Clause track. I can find no real redeeming feature except to say it isn't at all offensive, which is exactly what makes it so, ummmm, offensive.
