It's an AA blaster!

Piano Wire, the excellent new group formed by former Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster men Andy Huxley and Sym Gharial plus guitarist Sean Duke and drummer Tim Venning have a killer new radio friendly unit shifter AA side rock sing out, and you can listen to it above. 'All Roads Lead To God' is described by Sym as "A hymn to the beautiful, the damned and the ostrich-leathered dandies, building a beautifully fragile world around their devotion to music and pleasure. If you never spend time in those places, you're missing out on something." AMEN. 'Get A Life', meanwhile, is a pleasingly sadistic vision of "Dorian Gray getting whipped whilst handcuffed to the ceiling by his lover before going out to save the universe. Oscar Wilde was not an advocate of living life in the slow lane." FURTHER AMEN. Find Piano Wire on Facebook here and note that they play Birthdays in London on October 3rd.
