Egyptian Hip-Hop :: "Rad Pitt"

Egyptian Hip-Hop is, believe it or not, a real band. And in the true spirit of independent rock, they are neither Egyptian nor hip-hop. Rather with "Rad Pitt," the Manchester kids have done something vaguely Joy Division and a track that could certainly soundtrack a montage in the 2009 Breakfast Club. It is both adolescent, depressing, and energetic - maybe even a little reminiscent of I Was A Cub Scout. The warm guitars hide crushing questions: "who am I to you/but a mighty fool?" And that's just the chorus - a fist-pumping, New Order-ride to the the top of a spare arrangement. Don't you forget about this band.
