I'd been steering clear of this bunch, largely because (due to their visual stance and some particularly witless reviews) I expected them to be a cross between The Cramps and The White Stripes. Urgh.

Still, prompted by good reviews, I bought "Chain Gang of Love" today, and found out they're actually a cross between Yo La Tengo and The Jesus and Mary Chain. Nice.

Anyone into them?

I've heard bits of their stuff on MTV2 and the like. I think they played at Reading Festival last year, I can recall seeing a bit of their set (could have been another band though, damn my hazy memories).

What I've heard seemed ok.
