Me: 'Daylight Fading' has the up tempo feel of one of the early Bloc Party singles. It's got an interesting dancey rhythm, a really catchy hook and a great synth sound. Newer Rebus songs like this have seen people start to describe Rebus as Disco Rock. If that means cool and catchy rock you can dance to then it's spot on.

Can I sue? :lol:

This single from Reading based band, Rebus has seen them become probably one of the hottest things out of Berkshire right now.

Daylight Fading has an incredibly catchy synthy hook, which will probably stick in your head for days, and annoy the hell out of you. Nevertheless, the lead track is very now , and sits happily in with anything gracing the indie charts currently.

The other tracks on the album continue in the same vein, but show a slightly greater depth the band. Clone A is 6 minutes, and a very baggy/dancy 6 minutes at that complete with swirling synths. The final track Work Song reminds me very much of PiL - which depending on your feelings on them is either going to be a good or a bad thing.

Overall, a very strong debut single.

No, not that. The bit I quoted - the bit rough trade put as the description for the single is ripped off from my josaka review.

That's how this showbiz shizzle works Mike. That shit we write on the back of SugarRush flyers is always just cobbled together bits of other people's reviews...

I thought you were just trying to copy Sid's style on the Velocity flyers.

Nothing wrong with making bands sound interesting.

Rising like a pheonix out of the ashes of the legendary sonic undermind and yankee nine niner, this blisteringly hot rock outfit are ready to set the UK on fire.

instead of

Muf are a band whose influences include Nirvana.

Sid's style is pretty much standard industry gumph. Only a bit shit.

Is that where the comparisions between Rebus and New Order came from?

That was very baffling

That'd kind of what I meant by Sid like, random comparisons with cool bands that don't sound anything like the actual band. :)

There was a blur comparison which made me want to leave the band. At least it isn't a graham bloddy coxon solo comparison. God that guy is shit.

Graham Coxon solo is great!

Sorry Rob, you're out of the band. I'm going to have to assert my SugarRush overlord powers and move you on. The old Rebus drummer was better anyway... *makes some calls*

I'm sure he's great in a clever cute fragile fey indie boy kind of way but I can't see past his awfully dull songs and monotone vocals.

There's nothing clever about that.
