Lately I have been playing stuff by Superqueens a fair bit. Their sharply observant social comments, laced the the kind of barbed humour that used to be the preserve of poets like John Cooper Clarke, are utterly addictive.

I've already mentioned Superqueens before from when I was first introduced to them by the lovely George with the still awesome "Rat poison". With two albums under their belt - Cheap Shots and Royal Shit - they're the kind of band who you want to be able to mention in conversation without blank stares.

If you want a flavour of what they're like before you go off to scour indie record stores for their works, then you can check out the audio section on their website, as well as visiting both the Superqueens MySpace and the MySpace site of wordsmith Michael Conroy.

Though heck knows why you can't just take my word for it how great they are... ;)
