Welcome to the rabbit's hole. A blog on pulp.
The Arkwrights. Excellent Indie-Britpop. Smart. Straight. No needless pomp. Not Arcade Fire.
The Arkwrights do straight rock. Something between Franz Ferdinand and Dirty Pretty Things. Complicated riffs are an unsolved riddle for the guitarist but the melodies are simple and always near to an earhook. Not too near. Not too common. Tight and fast. A supercharged mini-cooper.
They won’t last for decades I know. But it’s britpop that is still unhyped. Maybe a feature would destroy that fragile simplicity.
The texts. Huh. Who cares for content, anyways?
