Big up the Staines massive, indeed. Apart from Ali G and Bobby Davro, the Surrey town hasn't exported much in the way of entertainment with only Denny Laine (Wings, Moody Blues) and more recently, Hard-Fi, troubling music-bloggers and magazines at any given point. The latter have racked a veritable pile of hits, including two number one albums, making them a considerable hot property, worth more than the fancy houses next to the Thames in their home-town, for sure.
Hard-Fi's next assault on the charts is a new album entitled "Killer Sounds" which will follow-up the 2007 set, "Once Upon a Time in the West". There has already been a recently-issued single, "Good for Nothing", the video for which you can view, above. It's a bit "Sandinista" and "Combat Rock"(The Clash), if you ask me, but might give Richard Archer and co their 9th Top 40 single/download. The new album is all set for release later in the summer.
The band is also set to play the HMV Forum on 23rd September for what looks like an exclusive London appearance. Tickets will go on sale from 9am on Friday, priced at £18. Expect new tracks, as well as the crowd-pleasing "Living for the Weekend" and "Cash Machine".
