The Cribs – Men’s Needs Women’s Needs Whatever (2007)


The Cribs – Men’s Needs Women’s Needs Whatever (2007)

What’s that? Women have Needs? First I fucking heard about it! Maybe that’s why my first two marriages went down the crapper!

Girls Like Mystery? Great – I must dig out my S&M gear and wear it when I meet that cute shy librarian Lily. We’re going on our first date tonight!

Anyway ….. this album, from May last year, from the band named after a Jerusalem stable implement, was pretty damn good.

We hadn’t played it in a while but did so after eight hours on the piss last night in the Emergency Room gogo bar! Maybe it was the Jack Daniels talking, but at 6AM today this album felt is like the White Album, Blood on the Tracks, Exile on Main Street and Astral Weeks rolled into one. What ?? …. Fuck … I’m drinking way too much Jack!! It sure ain’t that … but it ain’t bad either!

Yap … this was the Cribs’ widely anticipated return to the fray and their third LP in all. The album heralded a new chapter in the life of the band which witnessed the brothers Jarman emerge from the success of their previous album ‘The New Fellas’ and the subsequent chart placings that ensued with the album’s singles, particularly the pop cavvy ‘Hey Scenesters’, ‘Mirror Kissers’ et al which propelled the band into previously uncharted territories.

2006 saw the band back-peddle into the background concentrating on writing new material and cherry picking who they wanted to work with. To that end they entered a studio in Vancouver late 2005 with Alex Kapranos (the Franz Ferdinand Scot) who as well as being on the “same wavelength” also loved the new songs. The resultant recordings once again had the critics drolling and saw proof positive that The Cribs have raised their benchmark yet again.
