Helen Love "Tommy Gun" Reviewed

I love Eddie Argos, hes the frontman of Art Brut.  He has a great Twitter to follow.  Hes a bit of a weirdo but ain't we all.  He often tweets his 'This is My Jam'  and today, he tweeted this Classic Clash tune- done by a chick band, Helen Love.

First off, its intro from Joey Ramone was haunting.  I mean literally stopped me cold in my tracks.  I suppose Joey was a fan as well.  Two cool guys suggesting a tune.  You'd think I'd love it.


No.  A robotic vocal, over enunciated as only a woman can do.  See theres got to be a slur in a tune like this. I don't want to hear every letter and there is an art to singing a punk song without sounding choppy and awful.  Maybe shes hot- maybe that's why these guys dig her.  Maybe its cuz she has a cool first name?  She sounds like she's reading.  Its terrible

BUT the music is fabulous. See I said something positive!

 The XFM radio is repulsive- what the freak?  How dare you advertise!  How dare she slide in to Capitol Radio just to plug XFM?  Am I missing something?  I realize that Clash is sacred to me but if I didn't hate Helen Love from her speak/sing vocals, I can say I am totally turned away buy the shameless plug.

Eddie- you must have been tanked.  Joey- you're excused due to Sainthood.
