Translation “"The name of these Londoniens is not ideal for a career on NRJ radio, neither is their sound: Dirty and agitated, it propels the Libertines into a Tarantino soundtrack, cocky and glamourous, a psychobilly of crazy urgency! The Cramps and the Sonics have grandchildren. Naughty ones!" - Les Inrockuptibles 3/11/10


Rock group ENL beat hundreds of other unsigned bands last night in a competition to go on a tour with Britpop veterans Dodgy.
The percussion-orientated four-piece beat fellow unsigned finalists Lego Castles, In The Annexe, Cats and Criminals and the Fancy Toys at Camden Town's Barfly in the Metro's On-Line And On-Tour Competition.

The gig was the final of a competition run at www.memusic.metro.co.uk that saw hundreds of unsigned acts nationwide submit their tunes to battle it out for votes by Metro readers.
Dodgy drummer Math Priest, who was one of three judges alongside Metro's Abi Slater and Jon Mclldowie from the Barfly chain, said: 'I really enjoyed all the bands on the evening but ENL were the best - really exciting. We are looking forward to spending time with them on tour.'
ENL drummer Alex Allen said: 'I'm lost for words. We're really looking forward to going on tour - sex, drugs and sausage roll.'
The band, who formed in 2006 and already count Madness frontman Suggs as a fan, have come from all over the globe to make their catchy pop, indie-rock ditties. Alex is half-Scouse, half-French, Greg is half-Filipino, half-American, Shimy is half-Iranian, half-Finnish and Const is half-German, half-Latvian. Powerpop trio Dodgy are best known for their Nineties hits, Staying Out For The Summer, If You're Thinking Of Me and Good Enough.
The bands will tour York, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Liverpool, London and Cardiff starting on November 28.
