Giant Drag: Kevin Is Gay

Modern scuzz rockers publicly out ‘Kevin’

Giant Drag
Wow, 2005 may have been an onslaught of avoidable disasters from the flooding of the River Eavis to the demobbing of James Blunt, but the arrival of LA duo Giant Drag suggests the next 12 months will rock like the Babyshambles tourbus. Ushered in by an unintelligible squawk from singer Annie Hardy and built on a riff molten from the mines of My Bloody Valentine, ‘Kevin Is Gay’ is a barrage of gritted-teeth hysteria (“I want/I want it all!”) delivered like an Arcade-Fireball from guitarist Micah Calabrese, during which Annie discovers her other half secretly swoons over Dale Winton (probably). Title of the week, too.
