”The best band I’ve seen in years” Whoa!! Hold on! Say that again!? The
BEST band? YOU’VE seen? In YEARS? David Fricke, legendary Rolling Stone
writer and rock n’ roll guru extraordinaire, actually thinks The
Raveonettes is the best band he’s seen in years after seeing them live
at the recent Spot 08 two-day music festival. And what a party it was!
The audience was extaticly thrilled with The Raveonettes’ no-shit,
in-your-face rock n’roll which can be heard on their intense debut
mini-album, Whip It On, out now on Crunchy Frog.
But it’s not just any mini-album. Whip It On is based on
three chords only (who needs ’em anyway?!?), and the eight songs
featured on the album are all played in B-minor. And no sir, it does
NOT sound boring! Au contraire, Whip It On is an electric mix of rock
n’roll, surf, garage, punk and pretty much everything in between. The
Raveonettes features Sune Wagner, formerly of the much-missed alt.rock
outfit Psyched Up Janis, and the stunning Sharin Foo, who by far must
be the coolest grrl in the rock n’roll biz!
The songs are about all the pure things in life like sex,
drugs, booze and… ghost riders, and not since the likes of The Ramones,
The Cramps and The Jesus And Mary Chain, have you heard such an
explosive cocktail of pure attitude and good ole fashioned kick-ass
rock, like our mom used to make it!! Basically, it will kick your ass
into oblivion. But that ain’t all folks! The Raveonettes have already
begun recording their next mini-album, and this time, it will feature
three different chords!! How about that?! Only three chords, and it
still sounds so electrifyingly, fantasticly, whippedly, in your
face’idly awesome!! And the fans and critics have gone completely cwazy
for this band! Already they’ve build a solid fan base who will
undoubtedly follow Sune and Sharin to the end of the world!
If you’re in the States, don’t neglect the chance to go
see The Raveonettes, as they embark on a showcase tour in God’s own.
America’s never gonna be the same again. They said the same thing about
Elvis, but this time we assure you, the name’s gonna fit!
