Close Lobsters - What Is There To Smile About?
Scottish C86'ers, Close Lobsters have remained largely unknown for what seems like eons. This summer they'll join other post-punk, twee, and jangle-pop connoisseurs like The Bats, and The Monochrome Set at New York's Popfest. Despite their often avante-garde guitar structures, the band is really a pop powerhouse; which can be noted with their first album Foxheads Stalk This Land. (Their second effort Headache Rhetoric is nothing to snub your nose at either!) Take a listen to their 88' single What Is There To Smile About? I'd say there really is nothing to smile about this time of year, except perhaps this song and its fun lovin video, featured on MTV!
