The Vines: Winning Days
Nick Southall, Stylus, 23 March 2004
THE COVER SCREAMS "PSYCHEDELIC", Craig Nichols' illustrated face warped by a thousand lysergic suns. As you'd expect. The hamburger-scoffing Australian son of grunge and Britpop both, the behaviourally "difficult", spliff-toting, lip curling, pose-throwing, guitar-crunching, word-slurring saviour of rock, if you believe some. Sophomore slump? Difficult second album? Is Craig likely to kill himself at any point in the near future?
