Javro, I don’t think anyone’s ever made any fuss over Gene or Shed 7.
The Strokes: Its quite amusing reading what bands the strokes are ripping off, its quite an list when you put them together. I’ve heard Blondie, the Ramones, the Stooges, Tom Petty??, the Velvet Underground, Television, Pixies and it seems that no one can prove or disprove anyone else’s theories. They have some nice tunes but their not the greatest band ever.
I blame the fucking NME. There always trying to find the next Oasis for some reason.
