Cheeky British journos have likened Boy Kill Boy's sound to the Smiths splitting disco biscuits with Hard-Fi, and they're pretty much right. This is a retro band with allegiances to the '80s so rock-solid you half suspect that on their off hours, members Chris Peck (lead vocals, guitar), Kevin Chase (bass), Pete Carr (key-boards), and Shaz (drums) sit around the computer swapping e-mails with the guys from Depeche Mode. The Psychedelic Furs, with whom they have toured, make for a snug sonic fit. But as debut disc Civilian proves, the U.K. quartet's time has come, deja vu spells or no: opener "Back Again" dishes up a gorgeous dollop of gloom courtesy of Peck's pretty vocals against racing guitars and a brink-of-chaos vibe; "On and On" continues the onslaught of desperation with almost Duran Duran-like mock seriousness and punk guitar; and third track "Suzie" is plain old infectious, brilliant British pop, the kind that, should the folks at Fuse or MTV get a hold of it, could single-handedly spawn a new generation of music-television junkies (ditto for "On My Own"). For all its sleeve-worn '80s influences, there's a touch of angsty, My Chemical Romance-type post-punk to Civilian that delivers it smack-dab in the middle of 2006. Tracks like "Six Minutes" are better off for it, and so is the band overall. Boy Kill Boy, based on the lingering head-buzz this debut so unsparingly brings on, is headed for the big time.

The Talking Heads Revolution

Forty years after its release, David Byrne and his band’s album “Remain in Light” has held on to all of its mad and funky allure. The album’s merging of intellectual post-punk with cosmopolitan dance music influenced groups such as LCD Soundsystem, Vampire Weekend and Arcade Fire. On this fourth album produced by Brian Eno, the Talking Heads revolutionized their sound, but also that of rock itself.

Britpop in 10 Albums

“If punk was about getting rid of hippies, then I'm getting rid of grunge.” It was with this sentence from Damon Albarn in 1993 that England invaded the stage previously dominated by Nirvana and Seattle grunge. Britpop is deeply linked to politics and local identity and emerged just as Tony Blair and New Labour were entering the scene. English romanticism was once again becoming attractive compared to the American identity, which was considered too hollow in the UK. Make way for “Cool Britannia”.

The Pioneers of Rock’n’Roll

Rock’n’roll isn’t dead. But you can count the pioneers of the genre who are still alive on two fingers: Jerry Lee Lewis and Wanda Jackson. They’re 84 and 82. Lewis was a wild rocker signed with Sun Records who made history by igniting his instrument and transforming church music, country and boogie-woogie into wicked rock'n'roll. Jackson was a country singer who had a brilliant career alongside Elvis. Going from Little Richard to Chuck Berry, not forgetting Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Bo Diddley, Bill Haley, Elvis Presley, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly and Hank Williams, Qobuz pays tribute to the precursors of rock.
