That’s A Photocopier

Mascot Fight

Mascot Fight are extremely on their way to becoming my favourite band from Derby. The why? Well, every year, they seem to release a song that’s made out of pollen and pink bonbons. Last year it was the hieronymous ‘Thinking In French,’ a song as pulchritudinous as it was deliquescent.

I wrote about that song on July 16th, 2005. Now, on July 28th, 2006, I’m writing about another Mascot Fight summer smash. ‘That’s A Photocopier’ works on many levels for me. It’s slightly Housemartins, more Brilliant Corners via ‘Everybody’s Happy Nowadays’ and a lot shiny, shiny C86 indiepop.

Would you like to hear a clip? Okay, have a listen to a slight sliver of summer by clicking here. The full song will be on the Stressed 3 CD.

Well, I’m off to have a lie down now and wait for next summer’s Mascot Fight pop magic. Wake me when the sky’s gone all hurty.
