AUSTIN band Black Books, who release their eponymous debut on Monday, are celebrating with a cover of The Cardigans’ classic Lovefool.
The band, which also embarks on a first UK tour this month taking in London, Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham, said: “If Romeo + Juliet hadn’t come out when we were angst-ridden middle schoolers it may not have meant so much to us… but it did, and we ate it up.
“There’s no denying that ridiculous soundtrack.
“Since we started playing music together when this was all over MTV, we decided to cover The Cardigans’ Lovefool.
“They made us want to fall madly in love… and then kill ourselves.”

ELECTRONIC god and scary-faced dream-haunter Aphex Twin is to conduct a 28-piece string section and a 12-strong choir – by remote control.
At a special performance at The Barbican in London, the musician is set to team up with The Heritage Orchestra and Choir for the rare performance of his remote conducting stunt.
A venue spokesman said: “We are excited to announce a one-off evening of music from the most influential electronic musician of his generation.
“The show will include the first UK performance of Aphex Twin’s groundbreaking Remote Orchestra concept, plus ‘Interactive Tuned Feedback Pendulum Array’ – a piece which expands on Steve Reich’s ‘Pendulum Music’ – and more.”
