If Pete Doherty starred in the next three James Bond movies, hed be the perfect incarnation of Italian garage-rock sextet Movie Star Junkies. Now, dont get all ethnocentric, because these arent the Italians who groped your girlfriend at a club during her summer abroad. Rather, the Junkies with their dashes of blues, hints of surf, and pinches of psychedelic punk are love at first listen for fans of the Black Lips and King Khan, as well as for anyone who digs the kind of lo-fi rock n roll best achieved at the bottom of a tin can.
Phoenixs über-lovely and talented Becky Lee opens.
