Tired & Lonsome TLONE7007: 24th April 2006
1. I My Me Mine
2. Jhout (Wire Remix)
'I My Me Mine' kicks off with the sound of a siren going wrong, which seems to anounce the arrival of a band that are one cymbal short of a drum kit. It's as if aliens came down and randomly listened to pop, classical, new wave, punk and possibly some Kids-TV themes as well. Then they went home and formed a band without realising that these were supposed to be seperate styles of music.
The B-Side is a remix of 'Jhout' by Colin Newman of Wire. I've not heard the original, so I couldn't say whether it's better or not. It's got an Art-Rock sound with a guy shouting "Jhout" over the top. It's okay but nothing like as good as 'I My Me Mine'. I couldn't even venture a guess as to what the hell the lyrics to either of these songs are.
