The next big thing out of the UK?

THE VIEW made quite the splash in MP3 Blogland some weeks ago with their single "Wasted Little DJs." Alas, that particular tune didn't do much for me. "Superstar Tradesman," on the other hand, DID do something for me, which is why I felt compelled to include it on my Best of January mix.

"Same Jeans" gets my silver medal. "The Don": the bronze.
THE VIEW's debut LP, HATS OFF TO THE BUSKERS, will be available in the U.S. on March 13.

These guys aren't the next big thing "out of England", they're from Scotland! Big difference :-)

Jesus man, as an Englishman living in Scotland I've never heard anyone say anything so careless. I'd be lynched around here for less!

Okay, okay... my bad. I've made an adjustment to the post (that still might not appease the Scots, but it's the best I can do at the moment).
