Flashy Flashy

London/Brighton, UK's the Flashguns play to fast frantic post-punk songs with overlapping organs, disjointed beats and strong basslines. At times sounding as through they are in the same cohort as the Tokyo Police Club, with unrecognizable non-British vocals and and other times referring the heavy melodic drum machine driven British-ness of the Smiths and the Cure.

In "Locarno", they could pass for Canadian kids inspired by the post punk pop movement, and in "Roshambo", they start moving into a more Smith-ish territory, before digging deep into Smiths mode on their myspace.
