With a clear statement of intent and in the best tradition of songwriting, Yorkshire lads LMT write about what they know, namely that first French kiss, house parties, drinking, jealousy and court appearances.

Teen-fixated it may be, but the singles Man I Hate Your Band, Sexy In Latin and House Party At Boothy's are all nailed to vital, poppy guitar tunes, laden with hooks and compulsive singalong choruses.
