KSE have plans to record a new album with Leach back in the saddle; but on Sunday night, expect more than just a trip back to 2000, as Leach attempts to put his stamp on the songs that catapulted the band to fame in his absence. "When I go out there on that stage, I'm gonna be singing a bunch of Howard's songs — those were the songs that put this band on the map." It may have been a challenge to step into Jones's shoes 10 years after leaving the band; but talking to Leach, you can tell that he's a guy who loves a good challenge more than anything. "I could sense the conviction in Howard's voice in his songs. He walked a line without getting sappy, and it was a challenge to get into that headspace and do those songs justice." ^

  •   GLISS | LANGSOM DANS  |  February 01, 2013
    If rock and roll is three chords and the truth, then the mutant genre offspring shoegaze can be summed up as one chord, three fuzzboxes, and a sullen, muttered bleat.
