The Heavy, pictured here, is a four-man, indie rock band from Noid, England whose current hit single –How You Like Me Now– you may have heard on either the Letterman Show and/or the Kia Sorento commercial.
Their Great Vengeance and Furious Fire CD, released in 2007, featured, among others, two hit singles you’d swear you’d heard somewhere before. That’s because you have.
The latest CD entitled, The House That Dirt Built, (2009) is chock full of past masters goodliness. Track 11, Stuck, sounds like the Stones, Wild Horses, while Track 10 has echoes of The Doors’, Five to One, and Track 7 sounds pretty much like the boys listened to Floyd’s Money and then wrote a tune based on the melody. But that is not to say that this music is not a fine, finished, very enjoyable product. To the contrary – I highly recommend both of these albums if you’re searching for something to satisfy your I -think-I’ve-heard-this-somewhere-before-just-by-a-different-band craving.
