Keith Top of The Pops "I Hate Your Band" reviewed

Keith Top Of The Pops & His Minor UK Indie Celebrity All-Star Backing Band (yeah thats the legit name) are Art Bruts mates, and from the look of the line up, everyone elses mate as well.

The band began as a stand in replacement opener for Art Brut back in 2006 and well I had never heard of them until I stumbled upon this photograph, a tribute to Johnny Cash's Live At Folsom Prison)   It made me have to have a listen.

The song "I Hate Your Band", is so fun and so hip that I instantly want to hear more.  It's rare I make it through an entire song on first go round.  I stop it mid way and ponder if its worth my three minutes.  This got a full play through and numerous repeats as well as a fact finding mission on who this happy bloke is.

The song is from the newly released "The album, F*ck You! I'm Keith Top Of The Pops " on Corporate Records UK.  This is a self funded event and interestingly enough a 'pay what you want' proposition for the digital version.

GREAT song and so catchy- listen here
