Fun is okay


CALLING your band Fun leads to heightened expectations before a note's been played - it's like me calling my son Handsome Ashe or Popular Ashe.
It's enough of a tall order to live up to me as a handsome and popular father figure for the poor mite - and similarly this band has to follow in the footsteps of its members' former acts The Format, Anathallo, and Steel Train.
Anyway, as you'd expect with these expectations, Fun's album Aim And Ignite just isn't, well, fun enough.
It is a collection of passable pop rock with a sweet, piano-led Ben Folds meets Mika feel - but it's not going to get any parties started.
