Mother and the Addicts

Chemikal Underground (home of the Delgados, Arab Strap, and Mogwai) brings us another great band from the UK. This time Sheffield's Mother and the Addicts, whose second album, Science Fiction Illustrated, is a real piece of work, a catchy of slab of uniquely British post-rock. It recalls the Fall, Orange Juice, Jarvis/Pulp...lots of stuff, but it's definitely it's own thing. MOJO and NME are falling all over themselves for this band, and I think you will, too!
