And you thought Interpol borrows from Joy Division! SWR must have Paul Banks trading cards in their wallets for quick-fix inspiration.
Now, I've only heard two tracks which are borderline Interpol parody. But apparently I'm the only one who sees the comedy because LA's hepcat radio station (Indie103.1) have them on heavy rotation.
As a 'tribute band' they're quite competent; as a 'band' they're plain shit. On a scale of 1 - 10, 10 being best.... 3.5.
Pile of steaming stinky shit...or the next Interpol*? What do you guys think here?
* In a good way.
