Since the Libertines first dropped anchor with their debut album back in 2002 it's become almost de rigueur for British indie acts to sing jaunty pop songs about y'know like everyday life and stuff. Not that it's a bad thing (hell Ray Davies turned it into an art-form) it's just a shame that so few of Doherty's acolytes have managed to articulate the plight of the everyday man as eloquently as mess-rs Davies, Weller or even Parklife era Albarn.

Myspace You might remember new track "Sticks N' Stones" from earlier this summer, a pure dose of summer fun showing that Mr. Treays had not lost his step one bit. Jamie T's second album, Kings and Queens , hit UK shelves last week -- this is the latest single from the disc. "Chaka Demus" is also available as a standalone EP which contains the title track and three songs not found on the album.

You might remember new track "Sticks N' Stones" from earlier this summer, a pure dose of summer fun showing that Mr. Treays had not lost his step one bit.

Walrus favourite Jamie T is back with his second album Kings & Queens this week, and whilst the review will be a few days here are a couple of videos for two of my favourites. Stick 'n' Stones especially is just a wonderful wonderful pop song. Listen up.
Devo ammettere che questo règazzetto dai denti un po' storti e dall'aria tipicamente inglese mi piace un bel tot.In occasione dell'uscita del suo secondo album, di certo non poteva mancare la combo singolo+video!
LUSH!Watch the surreal, life-altering new video for Chaka Demus by Jamie T, directed by Julian Fletcher and Dan Henshaw, inspired by 'Cannon Ball Run' and Wacky Races_________________________ ______Described by Q as ‘an irresistible, Black Grape-sized invitation to party’, Chaka Demus looks set to conquer the airwaves alongside his other big hits Sheila, If You Got The Money and Calm Down Dearest.
Jamie T’s new single - Chaka Demus. Love Jamie T and can’t wait to get his new album. I prefer Sticks’N’Stones to this I think but this is still quality.
