- "Acrylic" is a musical single of The Courteeners.
- released on (7 years ago)
- "Acrylic" is a musical album of The Courteeners.
- released on (7 years ago)
- "Acrylic" is the 2nd single released by indie rock band The Courteeners, it is available on their debut studio album St. Jude as a bonus track. It was released on 22 October 2007 on a CD single and 7 inch vinyl reaching #44 in the UK Singles Chart. The song is a satire of Libertines soundalike bands swarming the music industry of the past few years, declaring them to have an "okay Jacket" (a pun on their clothing and the jacket of a book) but having "no spine" (a continuation of the theme of books and dismissing the bands as spineless and hollow). The single was relatively Libertines-esque in its delivery, but this was intentional irony that many members of the music press neglected to understand.
"Acrylic" is a book by Walter Foster.
