Strange as it might sound, maybe a radical change in direction isn’t what The Futureheads need right now. After all, with the exception of Bloc Party and maybe Franz Ferdinand, everyone’s favourite Mackem artrockers are the only British band from the new revival of (deep breath) ten years ago to have maintained any semblance of credibility. You can’t say that about The Rakes. And what’s more, if you believe what you read in the papers, the new wave revival is itself enjoying something of a, er, revival at certain East London nightspots. Shouldn’t The Futureheads just stick to making the madcap garage rock that they always have?
