the raveonettes

A friend of mine sent me a ten dollar gift certificate for the Canadian iTunes store, and I spent it on one of the greatest albums I’ve ever heard – “Chain Gang of Love” by the raveonettes. These guys just rock – they take 50s style pop melodies and wrap them up in Jesus and Mary Chain style fuzz. I have their first album, “Whip It On”, and it’s good, but “Chain Gang of Love” is utterly amazing.
