Late of the Pier

So, their honey-moon period with the cool kids may now be over (it tends to happen when the album's released), but Late of Pier are still a bloody exciting live experience.
Their album, Fantasy Black Channel, is one of my albums of the year. Fantastically innovative, and genuinely exciting, it's difficult to believe they're all pretty much fresh out of puberty.
I'm off to see them at Heaven tonight. With support coming from the new talk of the town; Golden Filter, and DJ sets from Erol Alkan and Metronomy it should be a pretty big one - I expect to have burst ear drums by the morning.
For the time being I'll leave you with a link to the fantastically frantic Boys Noize remix of LOTP's track "Focker".
Play it loud!
