A few reasons


HERE are just a few reasons why you should support Hundred Reasons by picking up a copy of their latest LP.
  1. Hundred Reasons are as reliable as they come - and new album Quick The Word Sharp The Action is no exception, boasting a handful of sturdy tracks suck as Break The Glass and Boy.
  2. However the band can still confound expectations - for example the laid back Pernavas Iela followed by the ripping riffs and electronic beats of The Shredder.
  3. Singer Colin Doran has a funny little curly afro haircut.
  4. The distinctive timbre of Colin Doran, which had a tendency to chafe on earlier work, now fits brilliantly into Hundred Reasons' vocal harmonies, making this some of the band's most polished work to date.
  5. Hundred Reasons is an anagram of "unharnessed rod", which sounds rude.
  6. The record was originally released in 2007, but despite positive reviews a mere 10 days after its release, their record label V2 was bought out and the album became unavailable again - until Monday, that is.
  7. Ummm, it was recorded in Riga, the capital of Latvia.
Well there's seven reasons at least - feel free to add your own.
