Next Big Thing For 2009 #3 - Cheeky Cheeky And The Nosebleeds

Some bands have just got it. That all-out sense for wholesome indie iced over with gobs of pop sensibility. Suffolk’s Cheeky Cheeky And The Nosebleeds are one of those bands, proven already by way of two waggish singles. And subsequent to its much-needed re-release this year, ‘Slow Kids’ will run alongside ‘Take Me Out’, ‘Yellow’ and ‘Time To Pretend’ for Song of the Century. It’s that fucking formidable. Not to mention judging by a headlining stint at Camden’s Koko back in the summer, CC&TN can cut it on the stage and all, somewhat down to singer Rory’s David Byrne-bred prances. Oh, and they’re not even as serious as The Wombats.
