HALF MAN HALF BISCUIT MEETS PLACEBO ?
:: Pink Fluffy Cloud Machine ::
01 May 2002 / Dancehouse / Manchester
By Captain Cornell TBTA

Do you remember at School when you used to forget your PE kit and were forced to wear whatever was in the lost property box? Well that's Pink Fluffy Cloud Machines attire for tonight. It's short shorts, bad t-shirts and trainers all around for the frankly unique band. The Fluffies are on the less-serious side of the alternative scene, in that they prefer irony and eyeliner to "proper" issues and anger. Gleefully knocking out Half Man Half Biscuit meets Placebo tunes with little effort, technology or care - the band appear unfazed by much. The songs (which do exist) are catchy, whimsical indie pop. Simple ideas with good prospects. Whether this product can become a serious motion for record sales and World domination, is to be seen. Sure, songs like "I Love Britpop" and "Paulo Di Canio" carry as much street-cred as The Fall, but the charts and non-descript music fans love this stuff and buy it by the bucketload. With a little help, luck and determination, I fail to see how this can't progress in to a bright future.
