The Maccabees

Image hosted by

The Maccabees hail from the United Kingdom, Brighton to be exact and remind me of The Wedding Present and Gang of Four. The bio on their website is pretty funny, here are some of my favorite lines:

"Bouncing, brash, befuddled, The Maccabees invoke all those primal urges you’ve had in the past couple of years about the renaissance of the British scene."

"The Maccabees have grown that glint in their eye and the spring in their step that comes from the knowledge all that hard work is paying off. The mischievous grin always looking for adventure ever present, The Maccabees bring that deviance which everyone needs from their rock and roll."

A note for you nerds out there [which is everyone reading this], The Maccabees have worked with producer Gil Norton, who produced the Pixies' Doolittle. There are no plans for an album as of yet, but they have a single out for "X-ray."
