New Enemy LP ‘Like Elephant Glued To Mammoth’

Jam-referencing indie tykes get trunks in tangle over new record

"Imagine cloning a woolly mammoth and an elephant then gluing the two together and then getting AC/DC to ride the back of it with Noel Gallagher sitting on the trunk just having a little sing song with [Paul] Weller."

Congratulations, you’ve just imagined what indie clobberwits The Enemy’s new album is going to sound like, according to a BBC interview with singer Tom Clarke.

The Coventry class warriors are currently recording the follow-up to their 2007 debut We’ll Live And Die In These Towns with producer Mike Crossey.

The frontman also reported that the album was "big – very big" and "…sounding well good".

Clarke has been walking on his hind legs since approximately 1991.
