4 or 5 Magicians (or maybe 6)

Here's a tasty little nugget for you coming straight at you from Brighton, England. It's a group of blokes named 4 or 5 Magicians, and they're releasing their debut single, Forever On The Edge, via Alcopop! Records (sister company to Big Scary Monsters Records). The title track has been floating around for a while so there's a good chance you've heard it already. Here's your chance to buy an "official" copy of it and support the band to boot. To tempt you a little bit more, check out the following track, which is a semi-spoof on it by the band doing their best Tom Waits impersonation.
