I’m not quite sure how a band who formed at a high school have ended up recording with Ryan Adams and being released on Rough Trade within two years (though my guess would be family money and some industry connections), but there we go. Starcrawler are just such a band, and their high-energy youthful rock debut is now available from Rough Trade.

The recording itself is a little rough, kind of muddled. But for a debut album this is great. Starcrawler definitely has some catchy riffs and lyrics (see I love L.A.), a slow ballad (Tears) and self strong rebellion track (What I want). Listen, this music is not for every one but you would not be here if you were not already aware of this band. So do yourself a favour and add this to you wax collection, you might admire their talent despite the explicit lyrics - a bit like Germany's Junksista, but more mosh pit than club dance.
