DIDN'T TAKE LONG: THE KLAXONS SIGN TO POLYDOR
So you may or may not remember that I tipped THE KLAXONS in September (read: WATCH OUT FOR THE KLAXONS), and before I could even pump out the next FUTURE SOUNDS, they've signed with Polydor Records.
Now, anytime there's a ton of hype on a band, there's the equal amount of backlash. I've seen some pretty harsh statements about this band, attacking their tag of "new rave", which the band never coined, but was rather given as a label by yet another lazy journalist trying to over-simplify a sound or movement. Hey, they aren't saving the world with their sound, but it does have a pulse and isn't taking itself so serioiusly. I mean, does everyone have to be as 'real' as the MOUNTAIN GOATS? Ease up and enjoy, or better yet, don't listen or go to the show. More room for us.
