Tonight, Phoenix are in town to fanfare their fifth studio album Bankrupt! This is one of those bands that should be more popular than they are. The theory is that their Gallic cool hasn’t translated as well into rock music as it was shown to do for some of their peers in dance music circles. I think the tide is finally turning. A complete sell out in London tonight, but unfortunately I can’t make it. By 2006, and their third album It’s Never Been Like That, they had evolved into a kinda post-Strokes jangle. As you will hear in ‘Sometimes In The Fall’, the disco rhythm had been dropped, but the art of catchy pop still ran deep.
