After five years spent scuzzing up New York’s club circuit, the Rakehells have finally hit the recording studio. The result is a blistering 15-track album (out on September 21) that harnesses the band’s influences the Sex Pistols, the Clash, the Ramones, the Stooges, et al, as well as more contemporary bands like Guns N’ Roses and Metallica. The album, Please Yourself; or, the Devil in the Flesh, certainly captures all of the frenetic energy of the band’s’ loud, debauched live shows
Comprised of half British and half American band members, the Rakehells build a bridge across the pond with their unique vision of what rock and roll should be… aggressive, yet danceable pop with an in-your-face attitude and catchy hooks. Check out Lost Weekend – their sheer sneer and swagger will almost certainly catch the ears of those of you still willing to party the old fashioned way!
