We Got Tazers!

Stagecoach

I can only imagine this band chose the spelling of their name so as not to attract any legal action from the well-known manufacturer of portable electro-shock.

They needn’t worry - on the strength of this E.P. the sorts of income levels which would attract corporate lawyers are still some way off.

The title track has a pleasant whiff of Urusei Yatsura and Teenage Fanclub, only with less fuzzed guitar than the former and less throat-grabbing catchiness than the latter. As for the other tracks, well, the comparisons with early Blur kind-of stand up but there’s no loopy riffs or eccentricity - this is pure early-evening 6Music fodder, or perhaps a lunchtime slot at the V Festival toilet compound. But hey, it’s happy enough.
