The new Kaiser Chiefs album, Education, Education, Education & War is very, very nice and I’m loving the Travis vs The Killers feel to it. The latest single is this Travisy one – Coming Home – presented with a beautiful one take video shot in Blubberhouses, on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales.
This was their first UK chart entry since 2008 – the same year that we saw them in South Africa at My Cokefest in Kenilworth. Interestingly, 30 Seconds To Mars were also there and we’re going to see them next month too.
Check out the 2MP camera on my Sony W900i. Vintage, innit!
Next up from the album is my favourite track: the rather Killersy Meanwhile Up In Heaven, whose video will almost certainly get a blog post of its own here.
Part of me has this sneaky feeling that Ricky and the boys are an outside bet for Rocking The Daisies this year. New album, touring the US and then doing a few festivals til September – it all adds up. They’d be a great addition, especially since the announcement of the first international acts on the bill (Crystal Fighters and Rudimental) failed to pique my interest in any way, shape or form.
