Preston's (Ordinary Boys) comeback

Preston's new solo single "Dress To Kill" is an absolute stinker. It is based on "Happy House" by Siouxsie & The Banshees. The press release says "Happy House" was sampled - But I would say the whole track is based on that Banshees song. It's a bit like Preston going electro pop or La Roux. It really is bad.

I really really liked the first Ordinary Boys album "Over The Counter Culture" but I am sorry to say it was doooown hill from there on.

What were they thinking?

Re: Preston's (Ordinary Boys) comeback.

it not good at all, he was on Something for the Weekend yesterday, Tim lovejoy commented on the fact he had a Morrissey look going on.
Preston said the change in his music is down to him wanting to play all the instruments but can't play the drums so he went electro (watch it on i player)

I am all for new pop talent but Preston takes the biscuit!

The song is a cover of "Happy House" by Siouxsie & Banshees. The video is a direct imitation of "The Lost Boys". The song has been given a sickly sugary electro coating...

This is a bad commercial joke.

Thought The Ordinary Boys were a really good band, excellent live, this solo single is awful, couldn't believe just how bad it was when I first heard it.
