Hmmmm bop

People don't appreciate how tough it can be being a musical snob.

Most of the time it's easy - tell tale signs such as major label bandwagon jumping or Radio One daytime playlist support mean we can turn our noses up without fearing any damaging repercussions.

But sometimes a band comes along and, although you get the feeling that you'll hate them in six months' time, the strength of a single track leaves you confused.

It temporarily knocks out the inbuilt gauge of what innovating trendsetters such as ourselves should dig.

'Can't stop, can't stop, can't stop my feet', these Junior Senior guys are amazing! 'Doopity, doop, doop, do-wo-doop', this shit is amazing!

And so on....to Young Fathers, a Scottish hip hop act who already have a couple of nauseating tracks on their MySpace alongside their forthcoming single, Straight Back On It.

I just can't decide....
