Smoking Popes - Born To Quit (1995)

This band is made up of three Caterer brothers. The band sound like Frank Sinatra fronting a pop punk band ala The Ramones or The Buzzcocks although at times vocalist Josh Caterer sounds like Morrisey and the guy from They Might Be Giants.

The Morrisey-like vocals are definitely on the song "Need You Round" but there is a lack of the depressing tongue and cheek humour so this band come across as far more chirpy than the misunderstood English misery guts. The song "Rubella" is the band's strongest song in my opinion and there is a Rubella youtube video.
