Filed under: Lampsha Spins
AS you may have surmised, our post title is little more than a
stupid uninspired cleverish play on the name of the song we’ve decided to feature for today’s spin. That’s right, your eyes don’t deceive, we said WE. Once again we’re doing our best to fill in for the delightful (and WAY more clever) Saturday Spinstress, DJ LAMPSHA, in hopes another weekend away from blogging will make Life just a wee bit easier on our dear friend.
THE band we’re featuring is called THE FRATELLIS. 3 unrelated guys from Glasgow, who met through a “mutual love of strange fruit“, changed their last names to Fratelli (why? we dunno), pooled their musical talents to create (in their words) the “happilyest of sounds“, and hit the music scene just a couple of years ago — releasing their one and only CD in 2006. Relatively unknown, they still managed to garner the coveted “Best British Breakthrough Act” in 2007. Impressive, no?
SURELY some of you have heard of this band, Shirley. Naturally, we had not, but that’s beside the point. The point, which is being uploaded onto our iPod, even as we type, is that, thanks to BOBO* — who’s always got his ey… er, ear out for groovy new groups — not only did we finally hear about The Fratellis, we listened to a few of their tunes, and became instant(ish) fans. These guys are flat out kick-ass awesome. The end, tappity tap, no erasies.
MAYBE you kids’ll like The Fratellis, maybe you won’t. And maybe — just maybe — you’ll find yourself tappity tap tapping your toes the way we did once you listen, because their inventive music is hella fun.
BY the way, “Creeping Up the Backstairs” (the song you just heard) was the first single released off the Fratellis’ Debut “album”, Costello Music. Care to hear more? Check out THE FRATELLIS WEBSITE you won’t be disappointed. (watch the video for “Whistle for the Choir”, a more laid-back song that’s reminiscent of early Beatles) Or maybe you will be disappointed, but since we plan to be out ‘n about for most of the day, we won’t be around to hear your whining. That said, if you DO like what you hear and/or see, you can also listen to more songs (“Chelsea Dagger” and “Flathead” are both fun) — where else? That’s right, on their MYSPACE PAGE. (whatever did musicians do before The MySpace?)
*Believe it or not, BoBo has a new post up. That’s right, a new… post. Not only that, it’s music-related, and flat out funny. Especially worth noting, we believe, because he did his last post in September. That’s right… September.
