This Is Why I Hate The British Press
You'd expect the Times of London to be a little more sober than the rabid UK music press. But no. They do a profile of The Young Knives, a new band with their first CD due out Aug 21. And the Times immediately compares their CD to the Specials album More Specials and The Streets' debut, two landmark UK releases. So naturally, I'm tricked yet again into thinking this must be the stunning album of the year and I buy it on import. Next week, it'll be someone else.
