Sunderland four-piece The Futureheads are both an intriguing and powerful mass of contradictions. They are a band who – like all the best bands – look and feel like a gang, but who, in this instance, can rarely agree on anything at all. A band who have deliberately set themselves only short-term, low-key goals, but are, realistically, on the verge of going all the way. A band who recognize and salute the DIY ethic, while simultaneously detesting its implicit under-achievement. A band who can accurately cite Devo, Queen, Fugazi and Kate Bush as influences, but who have carved out their own instantly identifiable sonic niche. Maybe it’s a result of the four of them being a reasonably well-functioning democracy. And maybe that’s a result of them each having a microphone and, therefore, four separate voices on stage. And possibly that came aboutbecause, having no PA, they had to have first a music and then a vocal rehearsal, and so decided they might as well each have a bash at singing. Some things about The Futureheads, you see, make straightforward sense…
