Aussie rockers with a great name. Stop That Lemming have two albums available. The aptly title "The Beginning' establishes the band as a funky little rock outfit and if you're tired of the "modern rock" sound that's always coming out of the USA, here's a band who know how to create a vibe. From the horn drenched title track through the glories of "Desperation Hour" with its mid period U2 influences, this is top quality stuff. "Temple" is an emotive exploration of the false obsession that so many have for bodily perfection. Sometimes the lightly funked presentation reminds me of Sweet Comfort Band and on "The Beginning", this six-piece establish a fluid pop rock style that is jam packed with fine tunes, good production and catchy hooks that show a band finding their feet musically. I prefer it when they're going for the breezy funky stuff, so my faves are "Take Or Give" and the brilliant "Wrapped Up In Chains".
