has anyone else heard these dudes? i got sent a link to a video for "fundamentalist" on youtube a few weeks ago, then found out they were giving their album away free with the independent a few days later. it sounds awesome, and all the better for being free

they are a 'supergroup' with a couple of the guys from arctic monkeys and the guy from reverend and the makers, and lowkey who is a bit of a hero. also loads of cameos from good dudes.

some of the tracks on the album are a bit weak, but i think the general idea of getting politics out to the masses is cool, and living in london i can totally relate to a lot of the stuff they are saying and it is all pretty topical

anyway, to me it was one of those things that came out of the blue and surprised me as something a bit interesting. i'd recommend checking it out
