Kaiser Chiefs – Modern Way – Single Review

by Lucie

Being someone who would normally despise such a trendy band, I never had the highest of expectations for the Kaiser Chiefs; and ‘Oh My God’ confirmed for me that they were crap. But it took just one listen of ‘Every Day I Love You Less And Less’ to prove to me their talent not only as musicians, but perhaps even more so as lyricists.
‘Modern Way’ doesn’t have quite the same energy as ‘EDILYLAL’ or ‘I Predict A Riot’, but the chorus is heavy and harder on the rock edge than the indie. Ricky Wilson and co.’s unique take on British life is a huge part of their appeal, and this single is a fantastic choice to wave farewell to the scene on. It’s the final record to be lifted from the million-selling album ‘Employment’, so as long as the lads don’t go all egotistical on us, I think we can expect more of the same kind of genius.

Kaiser Chiefs – Employment DVD Review

by Emma

Kooky Kaiser Chiefs have taken the idea the usual format of music DVD releases and turned it on it’s head. Enjoyment is a ninety minute film with tracks from the band included as a bonus rather than the main feature!

Basically what Enjoyment delivers is a couple of hours of northern humour, amusing sketches and some quality music. The numerous live tracks from shows at my own favorite venues York Fibbers and Leeds Cockpit show off the technical quiality of Kaiser Chiefs’ live performance. Footage of the towns of Britain is accompanied by dry and witty narration by actor Bill Nighy.

Hardcore fans will enjoy the exclusive interviews of the band at ages 7 and 50!

The DVD also includes the excellent promotional videos for five singles including Oh My God and Every Day I Love You Less And Less.

To be completely honest I wasn’t sure what to expect from this DVD and wasn’t sure if I would enjoy it, but I actually have really enjoyed it and found myself laughing all the way through. A great way to spend a couple of hours and you won’tahve to be a major fan to appreciate this. Well worth adding to your Christmas list!
