The debut by the Crystal Fighters is "Star of Love" and it's on Atlantic and it's also good news as that whole Armada thing from 1588 is finally forgotten as this is an English/Spanish electronic rock band. This new/old album was actually released in Europe in October, 2010, but just came out here three months ago. It's propulsive happy feet music and a couple are so completely infectious, you'll find yourself moving - or moving fast, this is clean the house in 14 minutes music or speeding ticket music. This album could also be called, "Officer, was I really going 85?" If you don't already, you'll enjoy "I Do This Everyday" or lines like "maybe one day we'll go back to rehab or Argentina" but the chorus to poppy "Plage" will live in your head for daze. A wonderful album.

He is the tall guy lurking in the back of all the local rock shows.
