Cypriot night

Well not a CD, a Graduate club night
5 out of 5 stars
I thought as a music review I'd review the Cypriot night I went to last night in the graduate, a fun filled night with spectacular music and even more spectacular dancing. Not being a Cypriot myself, only boring old English, I have to thank Elena on my hall for inviting me, maybe not the best night of the Freshers fest, but close for me so far.

Steady decline of my work whilst I write this review

4 out of 5 stars
Heard this band for the first time at the V fest, was an awesome time and these guys really rocked hard on the channel 4 stage. Their explosive antics started the saturday off perfectly, and put many later acts to shame. The CD I have to say though nowhere near lives up to their live gig, but it is still a very well put together album – Steady Diet of Decline.
Having taken their name from an actual town called No Hope in the state of New Jersey – how unfortunate to come from there? You'd be a no-hoper before you even began – this manchester mob attacked the music scene to create a band that sounds a bit Queens of the stone age, and a bit Strokes at times (in a good way). Out of the whole album I have to say my favourite track has to be numero 6 – invaders. Probably the most QOTSAesque, but then I'm a queens fan.
The riffs are to say the least catchy, and to say the most bloody great. The rhythm bouncy and active, with plenty of crash. Whilst the lyrics and singing set off on a slightly discordant and depressed feel that lends weight to Jo Whiley's observation on their possibilities as the new Nirvana. If their success is as big as all that then remember you read it here first, that is unless you read Jo Whiley's reviews online. Yep here's the album cover again. And a final note to say that although the Album doesn't do so well a live performance is definitely 5 star.
