Joe Gideon and The Shark 'Civilisation'

This is one of the best things I heard last year, London duo Joe Gideon and The Shark. Bloke on guitar and vocals (Joe Gideon) and girl on drums (The Shark I suppose). Think they might be brother and sister- yeah, I know, we've all heard that one before. The album is worth a listen, this being the best track, an epic song about leaving home to find out who you are, away from Mum and Dad watching over you, leaving home to 'learn the ways of man', taking in monasteries, Rome, Greece, the 9 to 5 at Debenhams, a Queen who showed him his crown jewels, Lars from Trio and the payoff piece of wisdom- 'the circumference of a circle is twice the diameter within'. Great stuff.
