Bio[Edit this profile]
The Rapture are like The Strokes but with a disco twist. Authors of this year's feel good hit of the summer, the striking new wave punk funk anthem 'House Of Jealous Lovers', The Rapture are the straight-laced rock band with DIY hardcore roots whose mercurial signature track is the peak-time tune of choice at electroclash parties the world over.
When DJ Hell played the opening shards of 'House...' at the International Deejay Gigolos knees-up in Barcelona last month, the place erupted and the venue got trashed. Would similar scenes of unbridled jubilation greet The Rapture on their debut live shows in hard-to-impress London? Or are they simply the latest victims to be devoured by the British media hype machine?"
