Future Of The Left is part of a current wave of excellent, angular, feral, disgustingly loud UK rock bands with silly names: Part Chimp, Shooting At Unarmed Men, Dananananakroyd, etc. Easily the best of the bunch, FOTL are the rare band that can attack their music with pigfuck fury and still maintain power-pop bliss. Hell, you can dance to it, too. Catch ’em before the Siren Festival. With the less British but equally silly-named Me You Us Them.
