i simply love this band…

“The comforting ache 

Of the summer holidays 
Pointless days pining 
Afternoons whining 
The suburbs scream 
At passers by 
The scream of escape 
A new siren”

And there you have it, friends. The brand new video for The Kids Are Sick Again by the devastatingly amazing Maximo Park. Pretty standard fare. The band looing snazzy playing their instruments fronted by an animated as always Paul Smith attacking the microphone. All that is simply window dressing for the song itself which is simply majestic. Alienation, frustration and some good old-fashioned northern angst. Let it be said. No one does it better than the Park these days. Bless their hearts.
