Lauren Laverne, BBC 6Music

Biography

Mariacha horns, Middle Earth Club’s avant lysergic delirium, the three-button suited, angry cool of The Specials, wahed guitars and synth bubbles lifted from ’70s Blaxploitation plus drum beats fit for the dancefloor… ladies and gentlemen may I introduce you to The Method.

Vocalist Richie Hayes sings it like he means it, equal parts soul man, Northwest garage band shouter and cocky indie star. All who have seen them play live swear by ’em. For those who haven’t been lucky enough to feel their disease See Monkey Do Monkey release a double-headed primer for the band’s forthcoming debut long player.

‘Whip Around’ conjures up the post-punk genre defying spirit of the early ’80s when everyone from Dexy’s, Pigbag, the 2-Tone label and The Saints mixed horn laden ’60s black music with the vicious energy of punk. ‘Consider This Your Warning’ could just about pass for a riled young Tom Waits fighting with The Monkees. An odd description perhaps, but The Method do genuinely play outside the boundaries. If Kasabian ditched the stadium rock pretensions and used their imagination this is how they could sound.
