...Cancel The Astronauts!

(loving the jumper/tracksuit combo!)

Now here's a cracking wee Edinburgh band for you to sink your teeth into! I first heard about Cancel The Astronauts when a demo copy of "Slow Dance At The Disco" found itself into my music collection (and lodged firmly in my brain!) a while ago. Their recent "I Am The President Of Your Fanclub (And Last Night I Followed You Home)" EP has been getting some decent reviews of late so I thought I'd have a wee listen to it on their MySpace and it sounds great!

Their King Tuts gig on the 10th December supporting The Bookhouse Boys (amazing mariachi-tinged post-punk rock! Just imagine The National jamming with The 3 Amigos!) is looking like being an early Christmas present!

So to whet your appetite, here's the song that sparked my attention in the first place. If you like what you hear, go buy their EP ---> HERE!
