Band:Long Blondes
Title:New Idols
Reviewed By:Geraint Jones

Label:Sheffield Phonographic Corporation
Format:7"
Release Date:2004
Style:Label

Dropping through the letterbox with increasing regularity, here comes another hefty slab o’ wax from the prolific Sheffield Phonographic Corporation and this time out it’s the turn of the Long Blondes. And yet again it’s a good ‘un. Jaunty, scatterbrain, lo-fi girl-fronted pop – imagine if you will Phil Spector producing Delta 5 or the Shangri-Las in a rough ‘n’ tumble with the Gang Of Four. Whichever way you want to judge it, I’m afraid that with the added incentive of the heavyweight pink vinyl it’s another absolutely essential purchase that will both brighten up your home and enliven your ears.
