Just Enough Education To Perform. No, Really

I hate lad rock. Yes, Oasis are national treasures. Yes, I love the new Kasabian record. And yes, I actually think Tom Clarke could make a decent MP. But generally, all-in-all, day's end, I pretty much hate it.

This though, Stoke-on-Trent's New Education's 'Today' is actually not shit at all. It's good, like really, really good. King-size choruses, affirmative wordplay, Courteeners-before-the-shit-album-got-released-type effortlessness - the lot. And they don't look like they'll chastise you up if you refuse a shot of Johnnie Walker.
