About this item
Incorrectly labelled as another 'new Strokes', The Star Spangles sound more like melodic, new-wave rock'n'roll than anything clipped, arty or angular. Three chords, bubblegum melodies, it's more sleazy and trashy like the Dolls or barre-chord riffy like The Ramones, SLF or early Clash than anything too considered. However, some of these tunes have gorgeous melodies on top of their deliberately dumb riffing, and there is a sneaky intelligence and real pop nous behind their ebullient cartoon facade. Let it rock!
