iLiKETRAiNS : "Spencer Perceval" (Beggars Banquet)



The rather charming Czech blog, Getecho, alerted me to the new iLiKETRAiNS single, "Spencer Perceval". I was quite impressed with the brooding nature of their "Progress: Reform" Ep last year and featured them in the tips for 2007 post. This track is eccentrically English, dark, epic and is what I'd call progress from this young band. It has the potential to propel them into the big leagues. This is what Sigur Ros would have sounded like if they had to put up with the miserable UK weather. The video is also pretty excellent and reminds me of some of those stunning Tool promos. Impressive stuff all round. The single was released on March 26th

This is the band's explanation of the themes of the single:

"Spencer Perceval is a colossal nine and half minutes, reciting the story of the only successful assassination of a British Prime Minister in 1812. The song is written from murderer John Bellingham's perspective whilst its accompanying track I am Murdered is sung from the perspective of Spencer himself. Both tracks were produced by the band late 2006 in the first recording session for their forthcoming debut album. Read more about the history of both the murderer and the murdered "
