Album artwork for St Jude - Limited Double Cd by The Courteeners

limited edition double cd version in a digipack with 9 bonus tracks and a 16 page booklet. there's no doubt liam fray and co are currently on the crest of a particularly intoxicating wave. there's barely been a 'tips for 2008' list without their moniker prominently featured, with everyone from bono to the nme quick to garnish them with plaudits. debut album 'st jude' (the patron saint of hopeless causes, no less) is a stunning collection of songs. the courteeners are a band carrying a hammer in one hand and a bunch of flowers in the other. armed with the words of liam fray, and blessed with a classically mancunian mix of suspicion and romance, their work is a rallying call to rid our lives of everyone born on the wrong side of common sense. their songs - acerbic, witty and sharply memorable - have imprinted themselves on everyone who's heard them. sold-out gigs played to raucous crowds singing every word back tell you all you need to know about the impact of the band. you should enjoy the courteeners phenomenon for what it is: the sound of manchester being resurrected but the courteeners do it so much younger, so much faster and with so much more conviction. they are what a great rock 'n' roll band should be, like the libertines playing oasis songs.
