This is the third single from the Brighton four piece, and it continues to suggest that they are one of Britain's most promising new groups. They clearly have a sense of humour, printing "Britney fears Electrelane" onto a single that has those regular daytime radio friendly components of waves of guitar but no vocals. Both sides are excellent, but it is the A Side in particular that stands out. The band have tons of punky energy and enthusiasm that lifts their quite basic guitar music into the zone of excellence. Whilst they may never make a truly great record or a brilliant LP, the band are building a collection of consistently enjoyable singles. Soon, I hope, the name "Electrelane" will join those others that almost guarantee that the record is worth buying. This one certainly is!



Track Listing:-
1 Gabriel
2 John Wayne
