CD Review: The Whippets - You'll Be Fine EP
I'm not really a lover of filling reviews with press release fodder, but this is fucking excellent: "The Whippets sound like a dip in a plunge pool, followed by a particularly tricky numbers round of Countdown, standing on your head and then finding a tenner you didn't know you had and spending it all on Pic n'Mix."
