YOU SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO DRAG CITIZEN, BABY!
Read the title of this NYC rawk trio’s record out loud before deciding what kind of band they are. If you’re thinking glam rock goodness wrapped around a punk rock sneer straight from the garage, rock on, man. Tracks like the hip shaking shuffle of “Seesaw” display some badass wah-pedal abuse and a jarring bridge that showcases Drag Citizen’s razor-sharp songwriting, while the undeniable undercurrent of trash rock found on “Beat Beat Beat” exhumes the NYC rock scene circa 1978. Drag Citizen’s brand of rock playfully gnashes its teeth a la The Darkness, but underneath the pomp lies the undeniable sound of rock ‘n roll from the Big Apple.
