So let’s start with the band this blog is named after, they were dubbed the most hyped young band you’ve never heard of. Sounds familiar aye? But this time the hype was true, they inspired the band that inspired the most recent indie rock movement weather you like it or not.
They inspired the strokes to start making music, had the strokes not started making music, the vast majority of us would still be listening to the backstreet boys or something similarly as inspiring.
The band’s name was ‘Jonathan Fire* Eater’ or some of you might now know them as ‘The Walkmen’ , you know that song you hear on the dance floor but never quite know who it is ‘you’ve got a nerve…..etc etc’ EPIC.
‘The Search For Cherry Red’ was my favorite song for a very long time, probably cause of my love for any band using an organ and reverb drenched guitar. So this blog is named after this band, well, to be precise, this band’s song.
I’m an Englishman, working in the Australian music industry and believe me it’s tough. The difference in taste is scary, Gotye is hyped beyond any other musician in this country purely down to a melody line reminiscent of ‘bah bah black sheep’ which carries a certain amount of irony in itself.
