The Blue Mountains 5 piece, released their debut album 'Mood Patterns' back in April to a swarm of rave reviews, feature albums and radio airplay nationally. The Sydney band's debut is an amazingly accomplished album that sounds like an overlooked record from the 1960's." **** Sydney Morning Herald

"There's 11 tracks and not a flat spot among them... some truly terrific material brimming with delicious hooks, stirring melodies and moving crescendos." - The Age
"Beautifully played, sharply written and consistently engaging" **** Rave Magazine - Album of the Week

"If a better Australian debut than this comes out this year, i'll be mighty surprised." - Rhythms Magazine

THE LONG BLONDES kicked off 2006 as recipients of the NME Philip Hall Radar Award (previously won by FRANZ FERDINAND and KAISER CHIEFS). They were proclaimed the BEST UNSIGNED BAND IN THE COUNTRY by everyone from the Guardian to Vogue - and then got signed to legendary ROUGH TRADE RECORDS. They recorded their album - SOMEONE TO DRIVE YOU HOME - with STEVE MACKEY (PULP, MIA) and EROL ALKAN (TRASH CLUB) and it features more standout tracks than you could poke a stick at! It's chock full of so many good tunes, TRIPLE J also gave it Album Of The Week!
