Doug Brod: “They are like a ‘Kings of Leon Jr.’ and [they’re also] from Tennessee. They came to the UK and came up with a sound that was kinda similar to Kings of Leon. Emotional rock. The guys all look great – they kinda look like Fonzie, very ’50s greaser style. They went over great in the UK, and now that is kinda trickling back to us in America.

Kevin Wicks founded's Anglophenia blog back in 2005 and has been translating British culture for an American audience ever since. While not British himself—he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri—he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
