The Needs (formerly Special Needs) = The Libertines – the drug arrests + Kaiser Chiefs‘ fashion sense + Maximo Park‘s flamboyant style. Right now I’m playing their song “Francesca” which has a great punky and punchy first 30 seconds. I love the repetition of “15! 16!” Their song “The Winter Gardens” is also particularly good. They mix doo-wop music with classic rock guitar riffs with a slightly unpolished sound. It’s like The Sights meets The Five Saints.
I have to give big ups to Mr. Andrew Kendall for posting beautiful pics of the band (before the tragic theft of his camera equipment) and posting the band’s MP3s. Check ’em out “Francesca” for yourself via the link below.
