((McLusky)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness
MORE BANDS WE LIKE >
These Welsh lads prefer Shellac to Oasis, Shellac to Blur and Shellac to Echobelly. They pretty much prefer Shellac to any band from the UK. They think all UK bands are shite. They must have been pretty stoked when their indie rock god, Steve Albini, signed on to produce their second record, resulting in the most excellently pissy McLusky Do Dallas. Without any semblance of bullshit, McLusky tells it like it is, using their brand of catchy punk and biting lyrics, often in two minutes or less. Raw and fearless, McLusky's most admirable trait is their ability to mock themselves when they aren't mocking you. I pray Liam Gallagher doesn't meet these dudes in a bar, because it would seriously be on. I just hope they don't expect Steve Albini to back them up. Have you seen the arms on that guy? Good thing he's not a drummer or they would break.
