The Secret History - Johnny Anorak

So The Secret History have been around a while now (2007), and yet seem surprisingly little-mentioned on music blogs. Perhaps I price myself too low? . They've been busy, it seems - recording their first full album "The World that Never Was" and here's a single from it.

 I'd lose the football-chant intro for that, as a single release/radio-edit & let the music loose from the get-go; tho' even that seems to start out somewhat rockier for the first few bars until taking a more expected turn.  Perhaps it'd make more sense in the album context?.

and by way of an introduction, at the end... from their Desolation Town EP - I rather liked this... and it may make sense of my comments above.
