"Be all the boxes": no more "linear gospel" and "chemotherapy bulls&$#"

The promo sticker alone sold me....(and the price was right: 95 cents; God loves Rasputin Music store):

  • "One of the year (2007)’s greatest indiepop triumphs” - Guardian Guide 
  • "a holler-along Britpunk gem-a tour-de-force..  Four stars****" -Rolling Stone 
  •  “Be prepared to believe the hype…self-aware, smart and stupendously hooky,  a real life next band worth checking for” - Blender 
  •  “Come Autumn, they will be your favourite band” - NME 
But nothing prepared me for this song:

"Be Safe"
 (lyrics here..language alert)
with guest vocals by Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth..

Skip to 28:35 to experience "Be Safe"

The band: three brothers (including a set of twins) called The Cribs
