Music: Not easily offended.

Retro-post-punk is all the rage amongst the kids these days. Mainly, I think, because of the perennial popularity of hyphens. Part of the rampaging vanguard of angular riffs and glistening synths, Does It Offend You, Yeah? (or DIOYY) is a quartet of chaps from Reading and London. Today's slice of music joy – titled "Dawn of the Dead" – is off their first long-player: 2008's You Have No Idea What You're Getting Yourself Into. Straighten you skinny ties and dig hard, my pretties.

Oh, but a word of warning, there's inexplicable gold pasties and surreal, but bloody, images of dismemberment. If some Puritan at work turns you in because gore, near bare breasts, or Gary Numan-esque snares are inappropriate, don't come crying to me.

As much as I want to hate the trend of new-new-wave rock currently hitting the airwaves, I just can't... Cool vid, and a nice little tune to boot... Boy oh boy, a new album to buy!!

Yeah, this song does sound good, and don't you think that the singer bears a slight resemblance to Bam Margera!?
Anyways...must love Zombies!
