For some bizarre reason, The Modern are now called Matinee Club. Color me unimpressed - I hate bands with "club" in their name! I don't join clubs; never have, never will. Still no exact release date for (cough) Matinee Club's EP, but it's in January '07, with a single release in the UK of "Suburban Culture" this October. The tracklist is as follows: 1. Industry 2. Jane Falls Down 3. Closing Doors 4. Modern Love 5. Suburban Culture 6. Jane Falls Down (Ext mix) 7. Industry (Ext mix).

That's a good tracklist though their cover of Bowie is makeshift at best. Until we get something offically new, here are some gems to sate you...

The Modern Suburban Culture

How can you discount the magic of S Club Juniors/8, or Melody Club's first album?

However, that said, Escape Club were the worst of all "Clubs."

Even Culture Club?

...Parachute Club?

Oh no John! I forgot about Culture Club! They are in the XO pantheon...

Bono?

Yes, you look like U2 in your new wee picture!

Ha! Not sure if that's a mere observation, a compliment, or an insult ;) It's at least ironic, since MoogaBoo and I were discussing how The Killers seem to be morphing into U2 in the comments section of the latest CR post.
