Blast from the future
U.K. art-punk foursome The Futureheads are coming to town - are you ready? Drawing obvious inspirations from such past greats The Jam, XTC and even the Talking Heads, these post-post-post-punk upstarts have added a little bounce to the angular, danceable rhythms of the past, mixing in some terse hooks and cleverly acerbic lyrics. Grown-ups will no doubt shake their heads and mutter, "Haven't we been here before?" But to anyone born after 1980, this is going to sound spectacularly fresh and new.
