She Wants Revenge
Five years have passed since this darkwave dance duo released their self-titled debut album, smashing the official Guinness World Record for "Most Comparisons to Joy Division Inspired by Any Band Not Called Interpol." Backed by the formidable Geffen publicity machine, singer/guitarist Justin Warfield and composer/multi-instrumentalist Adam Bravin enjoyed some well-deserved attention before leaving the label in 2007, after which they seemed to hibernate a bit, perhaps in a crypt-like Hollywood condo with steel shutters and ample supplies of black lipstick. Well, they're back, with a new EP called Up and Down and a new, less-stricken sound that's more Prince and the Revolution than the Prince of Darkness. (Woo-hoo! Sounds like someone got their Zoloft prescription filled!) She Wants Revenge is currently touring with their post-punk idols The Psychedelic Furs, and that certainly would have been a gothtastic show. Unfortunately, the Furs will not be joining Messrs. Bravin and Warfield during their upcoming Valley engagement. Sigh. Pass me the Zoloft.
