Music Tip

I've been hearing this cracking good tune over the airwaves the last couple of weeks, and for some reason I've continually missed the name of both track and band when the DJ has announced it. Well, no more. I saw the video clip on rage last night and it's by a Canadian(?) band called Metric. The song is called 'Monster Hospital'. The lead singer recalls all the best elements of Chrissy Amphlett, but they rock out far more than the Divinyls ever did.

Check it out if you get the chance.

Metric are from Toronto. Great band. Live It Out is a great album. Their first album is pretty good too. Monster Hospital isn't even the best single either.

Excellent - I'm glad they aren't some one hit wonder that I'll never get to hear any more from. I really do love their sound, and their lead singer's sexy voice.

Ah, double post. Damn I hate that.

Rage is wonderful for re-discovering those songs you can't quite get a fix on. Had the same experience with "Heartstopper" last year. "Ohhh.... The Gollum Girl."

Rage is one of those last bastions of sanity in a world of banality. It's a pity that their morning segment has to pander to the slobbering masses, but I guess we all have to make compromises.
