Water All Around

"Water all around...never learn how to swim now." This site is devoted to great alternative music. Like "Swingin' Party" by the Replacements from which the aforementioned lyrics hail. These posts are intended to introduce visitors to bands that I believe deserve greater attention. If you wish to have an MP3 removed, email me at zotzedwriter@yahoo.com.

The Fratellis

Thanks to Water-rat Sparkylulu for turning me on to the Fratellis. These fun-first Scots are kinda like an amped-up, rocked-out Beatles, infused with the bounciness of early XTC.

Their lyrics tend to the jokey side, which is sorta disappointing. They seem to have the talent to go farther. They're said, though, they're definitely a band to watch.

These are from the 2006 debut disc Costello Music:

[MP3] The Fratellis – "Henrietta" EXPIRED
[MP3] The Fratellis – "Chelsea Dagger" EXPIRED
[MP3] The Fratellis – "Baby Fratelli" EXPIRED

Here's the cheapest place I could find to buy their disc online.

Yay! So glad you liked it.
I don't mind the triteness of the lyrics. Really, how deep is lovely rita meter maid???
Anyways, it's a top ten rekkid in the uk. Hopefully it will break here. It's all over my MOG.
