British combo McLusky, fronted by Andrew Falkous, debuted in the vein of the Sex Pistols' sneering punk-rock. Both My Pain And Sadness Is More Sad And Painful Than Yours (Fuzzbox, 2000) and the better produced Do Dallas (Too Pure, 2002) contain explosive rants against everything and everybody (Lightsabre Cocksucking Blues, on the latter, is emblematic), except that they also admit moments of relative quiet. The schizophrenia of the band got worse on The Difference Between Me and You Is That I'm Not on Fire (Too Pure, 2004), that alternates between seismic tracks and yawn-inducing tracks. Perhaps the warmer (and moderately radio-friendly) She Will Only Bring You Happiness represents the synthesis of their two personas, and the future direction of the band.

Andrew Falkous later formed Future Of The Left that debuted with Curses (2007) in a demented melodic new-wave vein with spirited keyboards and psychotic refrains. Future Of The Left's second album Travels With Myself And Another (2009) was a more powerful and confrontational musical rant, relying on guitars instead of keyboards (Arming Eritrea, Throwing Bricks at Trains, Stand by Your Manatee).

Gli inglesi McLusky, capitanati da Andrew Falkous, debuttarono sullo stile del punk beffardo dei Sex Pistols. Sia My Pain And Sadness Is More Sad And Painful Than Yours (Fuzzbox, 2000) che il meglio prodotto Do Dallas (Too Pure, 2002) contengono invettive esplosive contro tutto e tutti (Lightsabre Cocksucking Blues, sul secondo, sono emblematici in tal senso), pur concedendo momenti di relativa quiete. La schizofrenia della band peggior• con The Difference Between Me and You Is That I'm Not on Fire (Too Pure, 2004), che oscilla fra pezzi sismici e momenti che provocano sbadigli. Forse il pi— caldo (e anche in parte radiofonico) She Will Only Bring You Happiness rappresenta la sistesi delle loro due personalit…, e la futura direzione della band. Andrew Falkous ha fondato in seguito i Future of The Left, che hanno debuttato con Curses (2007).
