The Rumble Strips "Hate Me You Do”

Signed to Transgressive, the label that discovered the Subways, Mystery Jets and the Pipettes, this great new band from Devon, England apply leather biker jackets and a Stax-brand of old soul to their excited modern pop/rock. It’s zippy, animated and kind of sounds like Andy Partridge fronting Dexy’s Midnight Runners with the oiled up, topless bodybuilder from The Lost Boys attacking the sax.
