Nic Armstrong & The Thieves

Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: .

Rolling Stone recently remarked that “He looks like Gary Oldhamand writes battered love-songs like Bob Dylan with a case of Badfinger.” I don’t know that I fully agree with that statement. There are exceptions such as Armstrong’s Beatles-esque track “The Finishing Track.” On the other hand, “Broken Mouth Blues” makes me reconsider that statement with its distorted beat and upbeat rhythm. With an amplitude of recent buzz, a spot on last years Coachella and this year’s SXSW, Armstrong & The Thieves are definitely a band you need to know about in 2006.
