Does It Offend You, Yeah?
WebsiteDoes It Offend You, Yeah?
It’s difficult to define the genre of British maestros Does It Offend You, Yeah? (The name’s taken from a quote from the British Office.) Even just a quick listen to “Dawn Of The Dead” off the band’s 2008 debut, You Have No Idea What You’re Getting Yourself Into, reveals Killers-like guitar, a danceable beat, plenty of electronic noise, and a steel drum. But pegging the band to pre-existing constraints is beside the point, as the album did well on many 2008 best-of lists. The band’s follow-up,Don’t Say We Didn’t Warn You, is due out March 14. Come for the new stuff, stay for the commitment: Lead singer James Rushent broke his leg at the tail end of 2008’s tour, and he finished the final song before going to the hospital.
