Thanksgiving this month so another song inspired by the USA. I suppose we’re all a little obsessed with the US and how it represents the best and worst of us. But also I think that a certain style of guitar pop just conjures up the American suburbs. From the Rubinoos to the Fountains of Wayne, it’s bubblegum, soda pops, kooky girls and a cool complacency that we suburban London kids envied enormously.
