Little Man Tate – What? What You Got?

by Alex Hern

Isn’t it nice when a bad band does a good song? When someone you really don’t like comes along and releases a real stomper, usually by accident. I have it all the time, most recently with the Twang (but that’s another story).
Not that I’m saying Little Man Tate are bad, per se. They are just incredibly mediocre. Clearly signed in some pique of post-Arctic Monkeys love for the North, they weren’t even given the chance to disappoint, because that requires people to expect something of you.
But What? What You Got?… Well, I like it. And I suppose after all that slating, that should say something about it.

Incidentally, it appears Paris Hilton has been released from jail, a mere 20 days early. Apparently she has been transferred to house arrest due to an “undisclosed medical condition”. Poor little Paris, she must be allergic to prison.
