Josef K -Young and Stupid
When Franz Ferdinand came out a few years ago (how quickly were they forgotten? same thing will happen with the current crop of trendiness, and even sooner) some critics compared them to bands from the Postcard label, like Fire Engines, Orange Juice and Josef K. Apart from completely lacking the instrumental prowess, acerbic wit, songwriting ability and tense, stiff funkiness of those brilliant but short lived groups, i could see how the comparison made sense...not. Judge for yourself.
