Amazing band, I saw them at the John Peel Stage of last years Glastonbury and they were amazing. I only have Boxer and Alligator but both are fantastic. I love how the drums seem to be the driving force on Boxer and the singers baritone voice may draw comparisons between them and Interpol, but that's the only line I can draw between them.
