The Rakes at The Troubadour

The Rakes were pretty good. Their sound is a distant relative of Franz Ferdinand or The Futureheads, in other words angular post-punk with a well used copy of Pink Flag not too far away... There are also shades of The Undertones, not only in the music but the leather jackets, turned up jeans, boots and floppily fringed front-man. Actually the singer is quite the funny man between songs but I guess a sense of humour is a good thing when you have a haircut straight out of Chariots of Fire! He is right though - Lady Gaga does dress like a prostitute...
