FEAR OF FLYING – Routemaster (CD Single)

Routemaster CoverYoung & Lost Club YALC000817CD: 7th August 2006
1. Routemaster
“An aisle to dance, a glass of wine, my ballroom bus, and then we dine, If we’re inspected, don’t you flinch, I’ve got fresh oysters, by the drinks”
2. Round Three (Demo)
“A tendency to keep it simple at points, a connection of body-parts fused at the joints”

‘Routemaster’ is the strangely captivating story of one Bus Driver seducing another. However, based on my experience, it’s a surprise that they harbour any emotions beyond a deep loathing for the scum that they’ve forced to chauffeur around. It’s got the sound of The Futureheads embracing Pop instead of shying away from it. There is also an angelic intro chant of “I’ve waited nineteen roads for you…” that sounds like a mix between The Rumble Strips and Talking Heads. If you don’t sing along with the chorus I’ll be very surprised. When the Bass came in at 2.45 I was head banging like a lunatic, and this couldn’t sound less like Motörhead.

‘Round Three’ doesn’t match up to the A-side, but it is a demo after all. It’s got some great drumming, Bass Guitar and lyrics but the production lets it down. Stephen Street (Morrissey, Blur, Graham Coxon etc) didn’t produce ‘Round Three’ but he did produce ‘Routemaster’, so hopefully he’ll lend his skills to more of their songs in the future.

Already Young & Lost Club have given us singles by Larrikin Love, Vincent Vincent & The Villains and Good Shoes. It looks like they’ve done it again and discovered another great new band.

  9. Although buying a home seems like a daunting task, don’t forget that it’s just like buying anything else in life, only one of the bigger investments you’ll make.
    The movie is a very good example for women empowerment
    and a straight uppercut message to the men’s jaw was delivered on this
    movie. If you don’t understand a term or any of the jargon involved
    in real estate, then by all means ask your lender or broker for clarification. They are going to lie
    to you, once you sign and see the fine print you are going to realize
    that it is a ridiculous idea to pay that amount of money in fees.
    Do not make a decision until you are clear it is the right one.
    And, when you apply for home finance solutions, lenders ascertain your financial condition by taking a look at your income.
