.... and remain that way
(but their music improves)
the Ep We Are The Radio is a good start as it is basically Anton collaborating with a good singer.
I also like My Bloody Underground, and Strung Out In Heaven and even the earlier some of the early stuff when I'm in a retro-but-can;t-stand-Oasis mood (but never in company)
the BJM tune used in the opening credits for Boardwalk Empire is actually one of their more boring ones I think
For the Dandies,
are both total classic pop albums I think. Bowie is a fan
If you want to try them a bit more edgy
don't bother with anything after 2004 .. which was basically the year Dig! was released...
