Baghdad Country Club

This Brighton (UK) band grabbed my ears on myspace yesterday; splendid indie/punk/pop, they list their influences as BrandNew/Manchester Orchestra/Mewithoutyou
The Smiths/The Police/The Beatles/Rage Against The Machine/Jimmy Garrison/Led Zeppelin/DJ Shadow/DJ Format (phew, long list eh).

Baghdad Country Club are Elliot Tatler (Vocals/Guitar), Craig Simpson (Lead Guitar), Joshua Boyd (Bass/Bvs), & Joe Caple (Drums)... and that's about all I know, save that they're bloody good.

There's some excellent guitar on this first one, and it's cool to hear cymbals properly. "X marks the spot where this conversation died" - great line.

I bet this goes down a storm, live - hope they play nearer Portsmouth sometime.
