bicycle thieves Stop to Start / Camera Shy (7", £4.10)label: Loog
Renowned for producing some great pre- and post-punk exponents of a musical nature, the city of Liverpool has unearthed another in a long line of successful exports… ‘Stop To Start’, the band’s debut single, revels in the magnificence of their noir pop. From the opening salvo they fire a warning shot across the bows with the Bunnymen/Muse/Radiohead-esque guitar assault before emphatically endorsing the various plaudits with three and half minutes of bloodshot musical brilliance. Backed with ‘Camera Shy’ - it’s a statement of intent that it only makes the B-side - awash with swathes of guitar and underpinned by a plaintive vocal… literate pop for a new generation!
