There are very few EPs whose titles we agree with more than the latest effort from UK fuzz-rockers False Advertising – I Would Be So Much Happier If I Just Stopped Caring.EP , Yet the Manchester-based three-piece provide a host of reasons to pay attention, not least the guitar work of Tele-wielding Jen Hingley – the niece of Inspiral Carpets frontman Tom Hingley, no less – who delivers the kind of riffs that will have fans of ’90s alt-rock digging plaid shirts back out of wardrobes.

Ahead of the band’s upcoming UK tour, we caught up with Jen to hear all about her priceless guitars, Big Muff love and the dangers of swapping instruments mid-gig…“If you know anything about False Advertising, you’ll probably know that Chris [Warr] and I switch places between drums and guitar. I was drumming my part of the set this weekend at a festival in Hull, and mid-song, hit the end of my left index finger against a drum. The pain and amount of blood was so bad that when we switched back to me being on guitar I actually couldn’t play, then had to return to finish the set back on the drums. Not before being escorted to the first aid tent. Not my finest moment – I still can’t bend my finger, actually.”

Not My Fault is the new single from False Advertising.
