2 - DARK RAGS - PARANOIA BLUES - (L+C) 
CLOSER


One flamboyant Greek quartet: The Dark Rags ! Formed in May of 2010, our favourite Athenians scoop out their influence from Garage/Punk and Rock 'n'Roll. Their first EP, "Drunken Angel ", released in 2010, followed by their eponymous album released at the end of 2011, and, as well, the CD "Underground" single , put in full light their spontaneous attraction to the 70' s New York punk scene as well as the Australian Garage of the 80's. Continuous touring on many stages in Greece and elsewhere, honed their explosive but always classy sets. The Dark Rags then focused on the writing and the recording of this last opus: "Paranoia Blues". Throughout these 13 tracks, The Dark Rags explore territories much more obscure than before without denying the essential ingredients of such a particular sound: snare drum forward, more melodic than rhythmic bass lines, always rare but insistent riffs, crystalline arpeggios -la Chris Wilson, simple and efficient solos, scratchy vocals akin to the Dead Boys', Stiv Bators. If the overall sound is catchy and powerful at the same time, impeccably produced and studded with impeccable arrangements, the diligently worked out vocal melodies make this object of continuous care. Both raw and wicked, "Paranoia Blues" reveals the intelligence of people who are self-assured, raw and crude when it has to be, but whose uncommon elegance will charm everyone! Even if it makes sense to file this record alongside the Johnnys, Hoodoo Gurus', Gun Club's , Johnny Thunders, Barracudas, Miracle Workers and the Beasts of Bourbons, The Dark Rags are a million miles away from a sterile revivalist recitation, and they take us there with an album of staggering authenticity, which oozes Rock n'Roll from all it's pores!
