You Me At Six

If the present-day spurt of newfangled Brit pop punk posses is anything to go by, these five hipsters and their newly found kudos – a Top 25 debut album smash followed by a recent Fall Out Boy support slot – deserve to be taken seriously. The semi-Taking Back Sunday brouha they slapped together a few weeks back at Liverpool's teeny bopper-crammed Carling Academy does not. Singer Josh Franceschi was whining atop the kind of so-so emo blather that awes Fearne and Reggie, before opting to direct the YMA6 faithful into a full-proof mosh pit like a nagging jester at Jack Osbourne’s 10th birthday party. Blame Green Day.
