The Crookes Chorus Of Fools / Bright Young Things Expected 18th July The Crookes have announced details of a new single and their next London headline show. The latter will take place at the Lexington on Tuesday July 19th, while the day before – the 18th of July, of course - will see the release of a double AA-side 7” consisting of ‘Chorus Of Fools’ / ‘Bright Young Things’. Two of the poppier, upbeat numbers from the ‘Chasing After Ghosts’ longplayer, both epitomise The Crookes’ cunning method of using shiny melodies to disguise a haunting sense of loss and longing. Not for nothing does ‘Chorus Of Fools’ lament “It was clear that you and me were fated to be so damn blue”. http://www.thecrookes.co.uk/ Fierce Panda 7"
The Crookes Godless Girl New single from The Crookes 'Godless Girl' is the first single to be lifted from The Crookes debut album, 'Chasing After Ghosts', out one week later on 21st March. It follows hot on the heels of their 'Dreams Of Another Day' EP, released on Fierce Panda in September 2010. www.thecrookes.co.uk/ Fierce Panda 7"
The Crookes Hold Fast Expected 9th July The Crooks second full length album, putting a modern twist on their Morrissey and Motown influences into well-written pop songs. "... The music of this album is more direct and brash than previous releases but lyrically it plays subtle tricks with seemingly overt poems of love and lust being subverted with buried meaning" http://thecrookes.tumblr.com/ Fierce Panda CD | LP Out of Stock
