Released: 22nd August 2005.
When "I Predict A Riot" first got a release last October, it surprised everyone just by going Top 40, but many people thought the band would be one to watch in 2005. How very right they all were. Now the biggest new band of the year, Kaiser Chiefs are re-releasing this song, and I'm just one of many to have finally understood that it's a truly marvellous song. A perfect example of how to do very up-to-the-minute rock music well, and hopefully a Top 10 hit to boot.
From the Mercury Music nominated "Employment", the Kaiser Chiefs thankfully re-release the stand out track from their debut album. With brash but sophisticated guitar work, this is a monster of a song, but "I Predict A Riot" is slightly let down by its weak, infantile lyrics.
