6 out of 10

You could be forgiven for drowning in your own scoff at this band but belay that nostril-flare for a moment. They talk a fair bit of 'deconstruction' in their blurb so let's deconstruct this, their debut single. Musically, it's a precise Queens of the Stone Age rock-out with some choice guitar Fripperies and a thunderous REM (Monster era) bass. This makes Toyah Willcox' American accent even more incongruous but then, given the song, it'd be hard not to twang it a bit. It's a mystery but nowhere near the car crash you might expect - more someone in the opposite carriageway slowing down to have a look.
