Give up! Surrender! Raise the white flag!
Rock music is dead, the charts have been annexed by a vicious, new age talent-show cloned army and all hope for our guitar-wielding heroes has disappeared forever. We should all know the story by now.
And yet there’s The Maccabees, currently enjoying their best ever year thank you very much. As contemporaries from the last decade flog their new albums from boxes on street corners, and dream-chasing upcoming bands look to fight off the Simon Cowell-led tyranny from the underground, The Maccabees quietly gave their third album ‘Given To The Wild’ up to that most unattainable of Holy Grails – critical acclaim and genuine commercial success. Maybe hope isn’t lost after all.
