MAD STARING EYES – Walking In The Streets (7″ Single)

Walking In The Streets CoverRetina RET16: 21st August 2006
1. Walking In The Streets
“Don’t wanna play your games, no points or prizes, I thought I told you once, no more disguises”
2. Shiny New Car
“It’s an imported motor from a foreign power, foot down, accelerator, engine growler”

Musically ‘Walking In The Streets’ is like all the best bits of Roland Shanks, Maxïmo Park and The Killers. Over the top of that, vocalist Alex Jay spits out the lyrics like a psychotic Robert Smith.

‘Shiny New Car’ is something completely different and sounds like a great lost Jon Spencer Rocker. Check out Alex’s sneering, gravel-raw Elvis vocals and the handclaps at the end, I ask you, what more do you need. Given that ‘Walking In The Streets’ has already been on a couple of EPs, this could easily have been the A-side instead.
