The members of Minneapolis band Greycoats suffer from military fetishism. Dressing up as soldiers they promise liberation, revolution and all that. Their music however doesn't put up much of a fight. They want to be big and epic, but they sound like a second hand Coldplay. Only two tracks of their album Setting Fire To The Great Unknown keep you from dozing off - That Great And Terrible Day has the only memorable guitar hooks and Goodbye, Sweet Youth, Goodbye is a showcase for the vocal abilities of the band.
Lock 'em up in a room and expose them to The Final Cut for a couple of hours.
