Have you seen the advert for Volkswagen’s latest (and not very attractive) car, the Volkswagen Eos? It’s got an annoyingly catchy theme tune, which mixes old-style indie and 60s psychedelia – and is called Men In White Coats by a band called The Dallas Guild.
The track was originally an independently-pressed single, which was sold in record stores in London. And sold to someone at the ad agency who deals with VW obviously.
If you want a copy, you can download it (for a fee) at the band’s website. Or you can listen to it streamed online at the band’s MySpace site, where you’ll also find out that the band’s influences are Pink Floyd, Kraftwerk, Brian Eno and Moog synthesisers. Which is fine by me.
