I always admired The Cribs as they are one of them bands that truly embraced their shambolic side. I loved Hey Scenesters and Mirror Kissers and would always welcome them when they came on in the Indie club night. This was during a time when Indie ruled and every man and his dog was trying to start their own provincial band, with a local accent. The Cribs stood out though and by the time they released their 3rd album they have already had a cult following. I was one of them.
This video is part of my Top 50 Albums on a ukulele project, if you enjoyed it why not check out some other albums that I arranged for ukulele. Like The Libertines – Up The Brackett or The Strokes – Is This It. Or Some of The Cribs early inspirations like The Clash – London Calling.
