THE INDELICATES – Sixteen (CD Single)

Weekender Records WEEK0046: 15th October 2007
1. Sixteen
“Drop ace drum ‘n’ bass feat Hitler and Chairman Mao, if we don’t do it now then someone else will, it’ll be so funny, it’s the power not the money”
2. The Sequel To Peter Pan & Wendy
“The ghosts scream at the sound, as your body hit the ground”
3. Fun Is For The Feeble Minded
“You can’t have the sixties, without the war, you can’t have the rose, without the thorn”

A different version of ‘Sixteen’ first appeared as a B-side on March’s ‘The Last Significant Statement To Be Made In Rock ‘n’ Roll’ EP. I described it as “Sparkling Pop” and an “Assault against cynical bands who aim their music at the lucrative teen market”. It’s a song addressed to every act that ever pandered to “Disaffected” youth, exploited a teenage trend or filled their videos with American kids (Despite being in their thirties and from Pontypridd). ‘The Sequel To Peter Pan & Wendy’ has a similar sound to the ‘The Last Significant Statement To Be Made In Rock ‘n’ Roll’ single with added delicate Piano. ‘Fun Is For The Feeble Minded’ is an angelic ballad about our tendency to rose-tint the past and the Spanish-Guitar style solo is gorgeous. The Indelicates are steadily amassing an essential discography, and I can’t wait for the album (Or failing that another brilliant single).
