Crying Nut: Best — Wild Wild Live

Crying Nut: Best — Wild Wild Livescore-2score-2score-2score-2score-1

I’m doing my preparatory work for the Korean festival, and put this on my CD player last night when I should have been going to bed. The resulting explosion from the speakers can’t have endeared me to my neighbours. The sound of Crying Nut reminds me a bit of the Kaiser Chiefs in I predict a riot — aggressive electric guitar sound and fast pulse. Only where the British band feels slightly boring and four-square, the Koreans feel free and anarchic. When the predicted riot occurs, the Chiefs will be sitting in front of the TV watching it with a nice cup of tea, while the Nuts will be out in the streets joyfully participating. I’m looking forward to 20 May.
