MY FAVOURITE RUNNER UP
www.facebook.com/myfavouriterunnerup
Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear. If thereís one thing I love itís overly shiny pop-punk and Iím sure the punk stalwarts love it just as much. Whatís not to love? Slightly too loud overly enunciated vocals, derivative guitar parts and a kind of constant pep about it are all signs of a great little EP, honest. Enter: My Favourite Runner Up. The singer sounds exactly like someone else but I canít quite remember who. Believe you me; itís annoying me like nothing else. Itís some American emo singer anyway and thereís no excuse for that kind of carry on when youíre from an undisclosed UK location. Whoever he is (both MFRUís singer and the American bloke); they can both stop it quite frankly.

Itís pretty much the same throughout, so if you donít like the first track then itís highly unlikely that any of the other tracks are going to grab you either. I could wrack my brain for a nice little example of that bit where they did that little thing that was quite good but Iíd really be scraping the barrel for an example. Sorry guys. The whole EP is so twee that is grates on me and, Iíll be honest, I could only bring myself to listen to it once in its entirety before I started to get a bit (read: a lot) angry with it. At one point my ear actually started bleeding, that wasnít really related to the music rather than to a stray cotton bud but I think itís worth mentioning. On the plus side, there are only five tracks so at least itís condensed annoyance.
