    Despite my general reaction to the current, seemingly endless crop of UK guitar bands (disinterest to loathing) I quite like this song, it’s got a skittery urgency to it which I find appealing.

    I typed “i hate maximo park” into google and it brought me here. I was quite indifferent towards them until i saw the Velocity video. It may be the mind numbing repetitivness of the song or the fact that one Paul Smith is enough never mind the countless amounts in the video but i came to the conclusion that they are muck. that is all
