The cover stars of this month's  left field music magazine Wire the American band Battles  namecheck good old Rush. Turns out the drummer John Stainer is a massive Rush fan who has seen them over twenty times......................there's a mention of the chaps over the opening few paragraphs.....not something I would expect to read in Wire.

I have Battles debut Mirrored from a few years ago...a sort of crazy post-Rock mish mash of stuff...I wasn't overwhelmed by it...they are not a million miles from Tortoise whom I always thought had some of Rush's DNA in them................

Anyway I'm sure you've all been fascinated by this...........
