Shoes don’t really get a fair crack of the whip when it comes to being mentioned in songs or band names. Alright, the great Furniture had a minor hit called ‘Love Your Shoes’ but precious little else springs (runners like) to mind. That might be all about to change though as Morden band Good Shoes are currently spinning heads with a delicious concoction of Wedding Present guitars and even more rabid singing. Wouldn’t be worth the effort if the band didn’t throw in such a heavy quotient of melody and some gleeful whippersnapper energy. Not that you could tell from their website, mind, as it’s as difficult to negotiate as a desert map. ‘Small Town Girl’ is a single from 2005 and it will be soon as precious to your family as rocky the thoroughbred poodle. Jangle pop is not often this charming so soak up the twinkling melodies before they grow up on us. KD
