Next Up: Hail Social
It's either feast or famine with me these days. There are a number of interviews going in and coming out as quickly as I can get on them.
The Raveonettes' Interview
Chuck Norton, DeadJournalist.com
Five years ago, while walking through the CD section of a major electronics retailer, an album cover caught my eye. It looked like a movie poster from a 1950's noir film. Five minutes later, I owned the album.
It only took one listed to the EP to get me hooked. The band, Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo, blended vintage rock and pop, all in a minor cord (B-flat) to create a distinctive sound that was, and is, unmistakable.
Thus began my affection for The Raveonettes.
From that 2002 EP, Whip It On, to their last release, 2005's Pretty In Black, The Raveonettes' slick, rebellious rock 'n roll sound evolved dramatically.
Pretty in Black found the band diversifying its sound by adding a techo beat to "Twilight" (which was influenced by both '50's sci-fi and Miss Kittin) and legendary voicalist Ronnie Spector on "Ode to L.A".
