Does It Offend You, Yeah?

DIOYY? are a four piece who describe themselves as sounding like an arcade machine thrown into a lake, or a ZX Spectrum in a prison shower. Although I'm wondering how they know what these things sound like, I have to concede that they are probably not wrong. A combination of thudding drums, wailing keyboards, guitar, bass and a cynically abused vocoder, they respond well to the dubious task of warming up the dance tent on a Saturday lunchtime. New single "Let's Make Out" thunders across several hundred hangovers and provokes dancing, not wincing. And you have to admire any band with the balls to call a song "We Are Rockstars" before they've even grazed the Top 40.
