The Christophers

Plans EP

'The Christophers are wearing dark suits with quite scary yellow specs. They look like they work for a top secret government research facility. Wherever it is they've come from, anyway, they've come equipped with minimalist art-rock post-punk disco-funk so sharp it'd have The Rapture stocking up on Elastoplasts. There's a delightful cynicism about their lyrics and some killer hooks and beats. Add to that some sturdy assertive basslines, demonically abrasive guitar parts and the precision beat of a drum machine underpinning staccato near-robotic vocals, and overall you get something which takes in rather a lot of 1979 (specifically The Fall, A Certain Ratio, Wire and Talking Heads) and dumps it squarely in 2007 (there are bits where if you close your eyes it actually might be LCD Soundsystem). Scary bastards you can dance to - we like them very much, and suspect we will be seeing a lot more of them.' - Manchester Music.
