Kid rock Brit pop


YOU'VE heard of dad rock - upstarts Kid British are more lad rock.
Like a cross between The Streets and The Twang, on It Was This Or Football... the group sing of playing football and birds and living in the city and that sort of thing, with poor annunciation coz they're yoofs, innit.
There are some interesting touches in the upbeat ska-tinged indie pop here - such as the Madness sampling on Our House is Dadless - underneath the posturing.
But mostly It Was This Or Football... never really kicks off quite as it threatens to.
