THE FRATELLIS – Chelsea Dagger (CD & 8″ Singles)

Chelsea Dagger CoverFallout Recordings FALLOUTCD1 / FALLOUTLP2: 28th August 2006
1. Chelsea Dagger
“Well ya must be a boy with bones like that, she said ya got me wrong, I woulda sold ’em to ya If I coulda just-a kept the last of my clothes on, oh yeah”
2. Dirty Barry Stole The Bluebird
“He lived down my street, owned a Jaguar, no matter where you are, that’s a girlies car”
3. The Pimp
“When it’s all, sick ‘n’ gentle, it’s all, fuckin’ mental, it’s all, over before it begins”

‘Chelsea Dagger’ kicks off with a dirty Bass Guitar riff and a catchy “Dah dah dah” bit. There’s a strange hint of musichall, like Noel Coward if he’d been grown up with the Gallagher Brothers. It’s yet another thrilling party tune from a band who’ve put out three singles and are yet to put a foot wrong.

The Fratellis’ B-sides are always a treat and this release is no exception. The speed that Jon spits out the lyrics on ‘Dirty Barry Stole The Bluebird’ has to be heard to be believed. I love the “Halo-oh-yay-lo” bit, it’s great when it goes all Beatles in the middle and it fantastically half-inches the opening from the Friends theme tune. ‘The Pimp’ is a piledriving Riff monster that’s probably the pick of the three tracks. I was bangin’ my head so hard to this tune that it nearly fell off.
