We get press releases and listen submissions every hour of every day. You should really check it out! By no means do I have anything against these requests — after all, CoS openly embraces them — but after a while, the emails start to pile up and ultimately look one in the same.

The background: It used to be that spoof or merely "arch" bands, whose sincerity of intent was hard to detect, usually remained music press in-jokes, but ever since the mainstream success of Electric Six and the Darkness — or, for that matter, Scissor Sisters or Eagles of Death Metal or Jet, or the Datsuns , who tend, unless we've mightily missed the point, towards the cartoonishly OTT because they're less than serious — the general public has been more accommodating towards outfits who appear to have their tongues firmly lodged in their cheeks. And so it's no wonder that New Jersey duo the Gay Blades are currently generating a lot of attention, not just from journalists who like this sort of thing because they get the gags and the references, but also from proper radio stations with lots of listeners and everything. The band features hypermanic frontman Clark Westfield aka The Aristocrat of Crime on the mic and Puppy Mills aka The Snitch showcasing his impressively dexterous drumming, with occasional bass duties courtesy of the less glamorously monikered Jeff Plate. But they also do cocktail lounge, cock-rock rifferama and singer-songwriter angst equally convincingly, and if that makes them sound like several tribute bands at once, maybe that's the point. But then, we're as into smart-alecky invention as we are basic rock thrills, so we don't mind either way.
