"As the bratty hyperactive siblings of Hot Chip who inherited
all their toy instruments They Came From The Stars strike up that contagious
pound and commence to break their older brother's toys and throw that space
echo effects unit down the fucking stairs before bed time. And you know what's
so great? In They Came From The Stars World, there is no bed time! It's Time
has the song structure DFA's remixes have been aiming at for years...this
is the real thing. Remember your fairy stories kids, these are the children
of Puck and Pan. They Came From The Stars and ran away with your heart, your
girlfriend, your mum, auntie Doris and all your acid."

Over from NYC and boasting so many plays on their Myspace that whichever
intern is charged with hitting refresh and then clicking through the songs
must be trapped in a cage with only coke for sustenance. Or they've got an
obscene number of fans. As it is they come across somewhere between seventies
soft rock and Talking Heads. Apparently they're going to be HUGE.
Lawrence Arabia deserves to be HUGE. Go have a listen and gawp at the out
and out amazingness. Sadly I'm not so good at hyperbole but he does deserve
From the Myspace: "Lawrence Arabia's career thus far has been hamstrung
by the tragedy that was the destruction of the famous Pink and White Terraces
in 1886, by the cataclysmic volcanic eruption of Mount Tarawera.
With the proceeds of his
self-released debut album in May 2006, he intends to begin a massive campaign
to turn the terraces into a world class freshwater diving attraction by using
underwater digging apparatus to remove the metres of ash and other volcanic
debris currently covering the terraces."
