police and thieves.

this sort of seems fitting, if a little upbeat, for the slightly turbulent political and social year we're going through in the UK at the moment. and to be extra relevant and clever and shit, it also ties in with that Island Records documentary that was on the other day.

whilst the original could never be upstaged, this is definitely an effort worth mentioning.

Get Back Guinozzi - Police And Thieves (Junior Murvin cover)

influenced by the likes of Talking Heads, The Slits and Animal Collective, GBG lay down fuzzy, lo-fi indie pop that absolutely screams hot and humid summers, and people in tye-dye. their debut album 'Carpet Madness' is released on FatCat Records later this year so keep your eyes out for that.
