On the basis, we're guessing, that breaking through to the UK mainstream left Ricky Wilson looking like a man who'd not slept in three years, the Kaiser Chiefs have decided to stay as big-ish fish in the US:

"What we have right now is real success to us...We've been over there and we can sell out 2,000-seater shows, which is great. But you have to give up years of your life if you want to break America - and we're really happy with what we've got over here."

On the other hand, they might just be managing expectations downwards in order to look all the more impressive if the do get an AP cover.
