The Holloways So This Is Great Britain? TVT Records

Taking their name from the grimy north London patch where they all met, four-piece The Holloways already have a keen teen following. Unsurprising, given the upbeat, wide-eyed enthusiasm on opener Great Britain (even if it is an anti-capitalist rant). But

Taking their name from the grimy north London patch where they all met, four-piece The Holloways already have a keen teen following.

Unsurprising, given the upbeat, wide-eyed enthusiasm on opener Great Britain (even if it is an anti-capitalist rant).

But no matter how much effort it takes - and recent single Generator is a case in point - The Holloways' grin-inducing calypso-tinged guitar fun will have you up and pogoing in no time.

The teen-centric subject matter and jangly, bounding guitar-pop have all been done before, but few scowling cynics could resist these fish-hook melodies, harmonica and fiddle.

The South East's answer to The Zutons? Watch this space.
