(Super 8 recordings)

The main vocal duties come from Mark Targett (also guitar) and Allison Thompson (Trumpet), who gel together like Morecambe & Wise; it is all in the timing you see? ‘File Under S’ is a great example of the diversity of Heist, as Targett takes over the main singing duties with his Michael Crawford style, accompanied by eerie piano inclusive instrumentals before Thompson joins in to pick up the tempo and bring the number to a heroic end.

Closet Abba lovers and proud ones are advised to go straight to track twelve ‘Business As Usual’, a quaint and compelling reworking of ‘Fernando’ that will do more to make ABBA popular again than a thousand tribute bands. Heist raid their musical knowledge to give us fourteen tracks of captivating and alluring indie/pop music, with a sense of fun and seriousness mingled together, making it is hard to differentiate between the two.
