Tonight you'll sleep softly in your bed

Quite a lot of people are really into Kaiser Chiefs. Me, I think they're a good band with some great songs, but not really the second coming or anything like that. Not triple-Brit Award winners, but then, what's a Brit Award really worth. And I once wrote about their initial incarnation, Parva, quite flatteringly. Anyway, they have a new record out next week, which to their credit, didn't leak til today. And of course it's already making its way onto the blogs. I haven't got through it yet, so I'm withholding judgment for the moment.

More interestingly, though, head over to Mars Needs Guitars, who've put up the band's comeback gig from earlier this month in sunny Doncaster. (Apparently, this town in northern England is flagged by Firefox Spellcheck. As does the word spellcheck). It's got all the best songs from their debut album, plus a fistful from 'Yours Truly, Angry Mob'. And the crowd are very loud. Before great new song 'The Angry Mob', Ricky says "Can they hear you in London?", and they scream loud as hell.

And because it's great, here's the video for the single 'Ruby', which will probably be number one this weekend.
