• I'm flying in from the states for the show. Is there a meet-up before?

    • No there's no need to leave the bar for the Strypes 

    • Cheers. So far it is two to one in favour of giving the Strypes a bodyswerve.

    • Don't know Chris... gave them a miss the other week in Cologne.... Don't think they're that good anymore since they escaped their Mod-Dads' influences, hahaha... but you never know!

    • I seen the Strypes here last year, they were excellent, to be honest Chris/Kai ;-)

    • Saw the Strypes a couple of years back. For a supposedly pro band they were terrible. All fuzz and no style. Pub band at best 

    • I thought they were great on the night SR, but to be fair, I had already downed a few beers before their set ;-)

    • Maybe they are as a live band, Alan; but their vinyl output has gone downhill from record to record imo. Then again the same is true for Jake Bugg, who's still a pleasure to watch perform.

    • I will take your word for that Kai, as I only have their first EP and it looks like that,s all i am likely to have....Ha-ha.

    • Don't know if you know them, but it reminds me a bit of The Creeps, a brilliant Swedish garage band that happened to be on FAB Records, the same German label as The Chocolate... Factory. ;-) I think they switched to Warner around 88/89 and, on records at least, the magic was gone. All too polished and professional.
