Fronted by a Tourette’s Syndrome Tiny Tim on adrenaline, lead singer Jimmy Urine, Mindless Self Indulgence is pitch-perfect rollercoaster rock for the ages. When I first head these guys, it was reminiscent of my first encounter with Queen: they have the same instruments (and samples) as the other bands, but they are voodooing something completely original out of them. Their recordings are exquisite, but their live shows are the big bang experience. [Listen to a track by Mindless Self Indulgence]
