The Long Blondes will not be denied. - Oh My Rockness

Band We Like

The Long Blondes will not be denied.

July 19, 2006
Here comes Kate, Dorian, Emma, Reenie and Screech... a.k.a The Long Blondes. It's almost impossible for this buzzing U.K. band NOT to be huge. They have the right sound (post-punk meets New Wave), they're from the right country, and they're on the right label (the ever-solid What's Your Rupture?, also home to Love is All and Cause Co-Motion!).

Vocalist Kate Jackson has Karen O's swagger, Carrie Brownstein's snarl, and Blondie's pipes. They recently opened for Franz Ferdinand, Maximo Park, Death From Above 1979, and are set to play England's massive Reading Festival this summer. Their fame will not be denied.

The Long Blondes play Knitting Factory, on Thursday, July 27th, Don Hills on Friday, July 28th, and Cake Shop on Sunday, July 30th.
