They dress like extras from Russell Brand: The Musical, all back-combed hair, circulation-inhibiting trousers and shoddy eyeliner, but the Horrors have respectable influences. Count in Fives owes more than just its spiralling punk clatter to 60s garage rockers the Sonics. And their cover of Screaming Lord Sutch's spook-rock masterpiece Jack the Ripper shows ghost-train pop and instrument flagellation can be a thrilling combination.
