Everything old is new again, or vice versa

The pilot of Lewis on ITV3. A student they visit is playing 'Formed A Band' by Art Brut very loud. I am sort of surprised to discover the pilot was aired in 2006 and Bang Bang Rock And Roll came out in 2005. I wouldn't have guessed they were contemporaneous, but would have a hard time saying which seemed more recent. If I had to guess, having looked it up, I would have guessed the album was 2007 and Lewis started probably in about 2005.
