More insanely catchy alt.pop from the Yank indie kids hits our hungry shores in the form of a washed-up crate marked ‘Did I Tell You’.  What’s inside?  Chipping away the lid, we meet the pealing of a music box, the plinking piano chords of Supertramp, the borderline saccharine O.D. of Hot Hot Heat and what sounds uncannily like the verse melody of Wham’s ‘Freedom’ wafting upwards like the smoke from one of Georgios’s special cigarettes.  Slightly kitsch, slightly nagging, and ever so slightly brilliant: bring on that 12” crate marked ‘Nice and Nicely Done’.
