The Strokes

The Strokes continue deteriorating quality with ‘Angles’

A friend of mine once told me that I was lucky to share a name with one of the coolest people on the planet.

She was referring to Julian Casablancas, lead singer of The Strokes. The New York band, with their leather jackets and oversized sunglasses, were prophesized by the media as “saviors of rock” at the dawn of the century as they rode the hype train to the top of the charts.
