And talking of sound-alikes, am I only person who, every time he hears the first 10 seconds of Foals' newie Inhaler on the wireless, thinks he's going to be treated to a burst of Follow You Follow Me by the mighty Genesis?

I may not have mentioned this before but here at Irk The Purists Towers we have an annual "Sounds Like Ladytron" competition for the song that most accurately apes said group but which isn't actually Ladyton. This year's current leader (and unless things change dramatically in the coming 4 weeks, it will probably be crowned this year's winner) is Goods by iamamiwhoami ("crazy name, crazy guys"-Ed). These Swedish funsters have almost certainly pipped previous winners such as Chicks On Speed and Fischerspooner to this coveted title. They've also got the "Most Horrific Fake Eyelashes" award in the bag, too, I'll wager.
