Blog-achella 08: Time to testify?

A band from the church of which James Murphy is probably the Pope...

Reverend And The Makers



Who they are: A whole bunch of folks from Sheffield in the UK.

What they sound like: Well, under "sounds like" on their Myspace, it says "the best band you EVER heard", which is both a) vague and b) a bit cheeky, no? You better be careful with that 'round here, chillun. What they actually sound like is one of those bands that's a little of the rock and a little of the dance... seems to me there are a couple bands out there that have tried that combo lately...

Reverend And The Makers - Heavyweight Champion Of The World (ysi)




What I think: ... and there are certainly other bands out there that do it better. I like this song well enough, but was less than impressed with the rest. (Check out that rhyme, I should be a rapper). Hey, if you're gonna play the Dance/Rock game, you're playin' with people like LCD and !!!, so you better have some game. That said, I can't see this show being a terrible time, because you will get to jump up and down and shake your stuff a bit, and I know you like to do that. But as for the record... meh...

Song is super catchy, but just on the "best band in the world" note, it's a play on what the head of their record label called them after he saw them live the first time. It's supposed to be cheeky :)
