Lewis's single to avoid (20/03/06)

The Vines - 'Gross Out'
Aren't we lucky? The Vines have decided that we simply cannot cope without them, and have decided to reform. Hearing this will leave you wondering exactly why they bothered. It's a mess by all accounts; an idle cacophony of thrashing guitars and Craig Nicholls' blathering vocal. The Vines sound like a lobotomised version of the White Stripes, and what they've produced here ain't pretty. I don't know where they got the idea from that we need to hear them again. Hopefully this will be a decidedly ephemeral comeback, and they'll be permanently defunct before long - withered on the vine, if you will.
