Band of the Month: The Strypes

25 April 2014 3:31 PM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

The Strypes are the Essence & Spirit of rock 'n' roll. Make no mistake, these baby-faced teenagers (ages 16 - 18!) from Caven, Ireland are the most exciting thing in music this year! Did you see them rip it up on Letterman a few weeks back? Required viewing people. Feckin' eh, buy their R&B-fueled rock music and play it real Loud for your kids and tell 'em they got their Own band for the future. Then play 'em the early Stones, Yardbirds, Dr. Feelgood, The Animals, some Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Zep... Get my drift? Nope? Watch the video again, for feck's sake!
