The Star Spangles : I Live For Speed (Parlophone)
This is the biz.
Brash guitars, raw chords and raw nerves, ridiculous whoops, snappy suits, and a perfectly stupid sorta one note guitar solo, it has been on my stereo non stop for the past two weeks. Just when you thought it was safe to give up on rock'n'roll, along come The Star Spangles to make you all solar eyed again. With a nod to The Ramones and a respectful gob aimed at The Heart Breakers, The Star Spangles are here to save you from loser stoners, post rock bores and cartoon punk.
As well as the horribly infectious lead track, there's also a cover of Richard Thompson's "I feel So Good" and the madly caustic riffology of "Climbing The Corporate Ladder".
If you ever needed an injection of adrenaline powered, sweet and powerful punk rock to wake you out of your summer slumber and get you pogoing around the room, then nows the time to reach for the stars.
The debut album "Bazooka!!!" is out on July 14th
