Young Buffalo.

Well I can’t get enough of American indie of late.

I’ve decided to stop trying to fight it and embrace the cool band for their 15 minutes. When/if they hit radio 1, they will naturally be dead to me however. Edith Bowman has that effect on everybody right?

Also, one member of the band is called Jim Barrett (a fellow Barrett, just like Syd and myself). I suspect he must be the brains of the outfit.

Go here for more musical stylings.

Take a look at some of these legit endorsements from bygone days, featuring catchy slogans such as ‘Smoking is believing’ and ‘Songs for swinging mothers’.

These blasts from the past are guaranteed to have you yearning for the blissfull ignorance of yester-year, when smoking was still good for you, men were better than women and ‘gay’ still meant ‘happy’.
