I am 32 I have downloaded the album and it is awesome. I am soooo not their target audience.

CocacolaMum Sun 17-Nov-13 23:36:47

If they are who I think the song they were singing sounds much like another band who jumped around yelling "your unbelievable"

Joysmum Sun 17-Nov-13 23:47:25

I saw them a couple of years back at Camp Bestival. They are not my thing at all but were the highlight of the festival as they were so obviously talented. I'm 40 btw

Well they did feature middle aged women singing along to their music in "Mama do the hump" I love them too, they're a bit different.

They are brilliant - took DD to see them last year and thinking of getting tickets for next year too.

I'm 38! grin.

I like them and I am mid 40s! <down with the kidz>

I am 40 and saw them as part of Alton towers live last year with DS1 (12), they were fab! Far better than James Arrhur, little mix, labyrinth, stooshie etc. I really enjoyed rizzlekicks, they got everyone dancing and the energy was brilliant.

Not quite as good as Olly Murs though, he was great!

ZooTimeIsSheAndYouTime Mon 18-Nov-13 00:17:01

I love the mama do the hump video. Its really their mums too iirc grin

Lilacroses Mon 18-Nov-13 06:56:13

jamdonut Mon 18-Nov-13 07:46:28

I love them..saw them at Leeds Festival in 2011 when they were hardly heard of! I'm 49! grin

SoupDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 07:47:40

I love Rizzle Kicks. They always look like they're having so much fun!

DaddyPigsMistress Mon 18-Nov-13 07:50:00

Dp calls them the rizzle kicks. Now thats uncool

ABitterPIL Mon 18-Nov-13 07:55:00

Oh glad I am not alone . I even like how they dont offend my feminist principles. Again sooo not their target audience

fancyabakeoff Mon 18-Nov-13 09:22:55

I'm 46 and love Rizzle kicks.

Sparklingbrook Mon 18-Nov-13 09:27:16

I am old but love them for this. grin

Quangle Mon 18-Nov-13 09:30:35

Absolutely love them and I'm 45. Sorry boys grin

Loved their video for Mama...it's got their actual mums on it (they look about my age shock)

Love their attitude as well. They had a thoughtful piece recently about not appreciating the sexism and homophobia in a lot of rap.

Quangle Mon 18-Nov-13 09:35:37

Also this is why they should bring back TOTP. I saw them on the TOTP of the Year - at Christmas last year. Without that sort of programme that appeals to lots of people, I would never have seen or heard of them (can't do R1 because too much inane talk and down with the kids stuff, can't do Capital because too much shouting, can't do any music tv channels because of twerking and I'm not having my 7 yo think that's normal).

Also TOTP was what everyone talked about on a Friday morning, when I were a lass. So many "oh my god, did you see..." moments from my childhood.

ScarerStratton Mon 18-Nov-13 10:36:42

Rubbish, I am 46 and love them. And my DDs steal my iPhone to play my music.

SpottyDottie Mon 18-Nov-13 11:05:18

I was in Hmv the other day and had to ask what they were playing. It was Rizzle Kicks 'Lost Generation' on the latest clubland cd. grin

Dobbiesmum Mon 18-Nov-13 11:11:11

Did they do Baggy Trousers with Madness at CIN Rocks? I've never really taken much notice of them before but they were pretty good. Are they suitable for 12/13 year olds who are into rap and Dubstep?

Sparklingbrook Mon 18-Nov-13 11:13:49

YY Dobbies, I have linked up there ^

Dobbiesmum Mon 18-Nov-13 11:17:36
