The Cribs

I heard this song on friday when the DJ played it just before my soundcheck. My buddy and I instantly thought 'Ooh Sonic Youthy'. Turns out it's The Cribs from Wakefield BUT with Lee Ranaldo (SY guitarist) guesting with a spoken word vocal. It reminded me a bit of Popular by Nada Surf, only darker and more raucous. I've hardly stopped listening to it since. The new album 'Men's needs, women's needs, whatever...' is dead good too. Produced by Alex Kapranos no less, but don't let it put you off...
