Once again, Canada has outdone itself and graced us with another great band. Some of you know of my affinity towards misunderstood Canadian rock bands, but I don't think The Cliks will have time to worry about bearing that title. (At least in my tiny little Alternative Music world...) They are already bieng compared to Chrissie Hynde's early work with The Pretenders. That alone says a lot! The first single, Oh Yeah, (At the moment, I can't remember the title of the album - Bad Cliks fan! *smacks hand*) is being called "The kiss-off song of the decade." Hold the phone, here, people. The decade? I was as skeptical of that statement as I was when Greenday's Jesus of Suburbia (all 9 grip and rip minutes of it!) was called a rock opera soon after its release. The next time I heard J of S it started to make sense. My skeptcism faded almost immediately and thought Well these guys have come a long way since Dookie! But back to The Cliks. I would like you all to tell me what you think, even if alternative music isn't your thing. Check out their website and the first song you'll hear should be Oh Yeah. Do you like it? Do you like the music? Does the woman singing it have a serious set of pipes? And most importantly ~ can it really be worthy of being called the kiss-off song of the decade? (I've also heard that their live shows are nothing short of blazing. I'm optimistic, but I'll believe it when I see it.) Give the song a spin and tell me what you think!
