Twelvevolts Another song that would make my top ten of all time - all that phoney Beatlemania had bitten the dust. The ice age is coming . .

Twelvevolts The answer is they're a really cool band from Sheffield. This is from the EP of the same name - demonstrates why they're one of the top bands around.
AndrewLowe "I long to feel that wince in my heart". Oh my. Northern soul, indeed.

Twelvevolts Pornography is one of the best albums I own - and this is one of the best tracks. A song about sex, not Siamese Twins.
