Much-tipped London duo Grand National could possibly be the first act who, though heavily influenced by the likes of Japan, the Cure and Public Image Limited, sound nothing like them. Partly this is because although they have visited that late-1970s/ early-1980s dancefloor, their magnesium funk grooves have been refurbished with the care you'd take over a classic Bentley. Otherwise, they exhibit a healthy irreverence.
