Manchester rock trio The Fiction dresses like Victorian gents, so it makes sense to call their music something like stream grunge. Naming your debut The Greatest Hits EP is a bold move for a quartet of shoestring budget recordings, but their enthusiasm is matched by their songwrting abilities. Think of mix between the aplomb of Soundgarden and the anger of The Jam.
With their typical English blend of bravado, succinct lyrics and looking sharp, The Fiction's dreams of bigger thing might become a reality.
