Martell Released 22nd August 2005
The Cribs continue their musical blitzkrieg with the release of a new single in August.
The brothers Jarman, who have two Top 30 singles to their name so far this year follow that success with their third, entitled ‘Martell’. Lifted from their recent album ‘The New Fellas’, the single epitomises the vastly underrated trio’s knack of knocking out killer tunes.
Arguably one of the highlights of the album, ‘Martell’ cements the band’s position as one of the year’s success stories – oft mentioned in dispatches; their contemporaries love ‘em! Real life goes on but how those in know wish they could be The Cribs, sometimes confrontational otherwise purely contrary, they live their life onstage as they do off it no matter what. On their day one of the most incendiary live propositions you’ll witness, forty five minutes maximum of explosive three minute outbursts…
‘Martell’ is released on 22nd August thru Wichita Recordings and available on two seven inches and a Cd single.
Meanwhile, the band fire the aural volleys in the States for a handful of shows after which they return to the UK for a short run of shows before the single is released and their appearances at this year’s Carling Festivals.
