The sonic juggernaut that was 1993's Saturation was the high water mark for the Chi town trio. The album still rocks hard 14+ years later. Fed by a steady diet of power chords and smack, when time came for a second helping, there was nothing left but scraps.
Fast forward. From Wakefield, England we have The Cribs. Straight ahead rock with a predisposition towards rock star entitlement. When you buzzsaw chords like these guys do, I guess cocky is just part of the job description.
Both bands prove that rock is and always will be fun.
I didn't think there could be a new Urge. I might be wrong. Time will tell, if the lads can steer clear of the scag.
I'm just sayin'.
