Review: Randy


(G7 Welcoming Committee)

You like the Hives?  Think The Strokes are the shit?  Are you one of those fuckers that keeps requesting The White Stripes on the radio?  Does being ‘punk’ (read garage/retro) from Sweden carry a lot of credibility with you?  Go buy the new Randy CD.  You could do a lot worse.  They got a dash of The Clash and actual punkness to their sound (not just their press kit) which makes it easier to forgive them for tricking the rest of the world into thinking that Sweden actually knows about rock.  Remember Abba..?
