Band of the Week: Arcadian Kicks

’19 Days’, the self-released, Mike Chapman produced, Charlatans funded, gem of a single from Birmingham’s Arcadian Kicks is something of a mongrel of the pop industry. Something about the band doesn’t quite seem right at first, something not quite “organic”, but the more this debut single slams your record player, the less your guard is up, and the more genuine the band seems to feel.

Outside the Boks: France are driven to distraction but Koreans are in with a shout

As more than half of the 32 World Cup teams return home, some of those brave slogans on the Hyundai team coaches, selected by online voting, look a little more relevant than others. Cameroon had "The Indomitable Lions are back". Well, back home after three defeats. "Italian Azzurro on African sky" at least did not make any promises about the holders winning a match. Algeria did: "One goal: victory." Alas, it was two defeats and a draw. "Advance Australia" was always more of a dream than a reality. South Korea, who did get through, may have been making a subtle political statement with "The Shouts of Reds, United Republic of Korea". Their northern half, with less desire for any sort of unification thank you, settled for "1966 again! Victory for DPR of Korea!" The USA's message, which was maybe aimed at North Koreans as well, was the pompous: "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Victory!" England proclaim that they are "Playing with Pride and Glory" which some may consider an overstatement. Saddest of all was surely the hopelessly disunited French with "Tous ensemble vers un nouveau rêve bleu". (All together for a new dream in blue.)
