The Gang – Rose Island

If you opened my head I’m sure something like this would pour out. While we await flip top medicine which will confirm my suspicions NYC’s the Gang will do just nicely. Their debut album ‘Zero Hits’ (sadly prophetic I’m afraid) was released in June and is awash with noisy escapades that go nowhere in particular but still sound about as fetching as a stick loving springer spaniel. Along the way you’ll hear the Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth, the Go! Team and most especially that secret Gang ingredient that remains uniquely their own creation. ‘Rose Island’ is a blast from start to finish, guitar shards fly like shrapnel and are only matched by the machine gun vocals that are imbued with unrestrained youthful endeavour.
