Ringo Deathstarr (CD)
Having formed in 2007 and channeling influences such as The Cure, The
Smiths, Fugazi and The Velvet Underground, Ringo Deathstarr have
previously released a batch of singles on both sides of the Atlantic and in Japan – a self titled EP in 2007 and most recently, in 2009, a brace of 7”s in the States, You Don’t Listen & In Love and a 9-track Japanese mini-album,Sparkler.
Recorded quickly and recalling the pop thrill and sonic squall of prime-time Mary Chain or Strawberry Wine era MBV, their debut album, Colour Trip, has already been lauded by the likes of Pitchfork and Nylon, who recently ran a double page spread on the band, over in the U.S.
Having recently supported the Dandy Warhols, A Place to Bury Strangers,
Secret Machines and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart in their native U.S. the band make a return to the UK in November supporting The Wedding Present.
"Their pulsing layers of feedback and those droll, deadpan vocals are ripped straight from Psychocandy, but the galloping, amphetamine rhythms are harder charging than even the most amped up track on that album." Pitchfork
“Billows of fuzz and noise mix with alternating vocals, evoking the overcast landscapes of a Sofia Coppola movie in slow motion.” NYLON
