Word of mouth success has garnered Thunder Lightning Strike a Mercury Music Prize nomination and a growing number of admirers.
Bottle Rocket is one of those songs that's impossible not to smile when you hear it. Beginning with a burst of a sampled brass section, it then skates along at a breakneck pace as MC Ninja races through an exuberant rap.
