Two decades ago New Yorkers Fun Lovin’ Criminals gatecrashed a UK Britpop party seemingly in full swing, their debut treating the listener to a heady blend of rock, blues, hip-hop and jazz-funk, a welcome antidote to what had become an increasingly bland array of mod-lite bands, determined to flog to death every last drop of repackaged 1960s Cool Britannia.

In a humdrum world, there is always !!!.
January 19th saw the release of indie-punk band !!! (Chk Chk Chk)’s comic video for their new single ‘Every Little Bit Counts’. Zany and fun, with a whiff of abnormal, the video epitomises everything this band is about.
Premiered with Funny or Die, the video features input from the talented Casper Kelly, mastermind of Adult Swim’s video sensation “Too Many Cooks”. Frontman Nic Offer plays the eclectic Willie Wonka in an unremarkable world, combining “Zen calm with boyish enthusiasm”.
