DERRY rockers Fighting With Wire released their debut album earlier this month to little fanfare - so allow me to blow their trumpets a little now.
Because Man Vs. Monster is an incendiary alternative rock LP that deserves to fire up as many people as I can encourage to listen to it.
Sounding like an angry young Foo Fighters or Biffy Clyro, the group bash their way through fiery track after fiery track of top notch no-nonsense rock.
It's not big - such as U2 - and it's not clever - like The Decemberists, say - but for me, this is the most enjoyable album of the year to date.
