Long Before Rock’N’Roll (Mute)

Cripes, this track sounds so much like ‘Deadwood’ by Dirty Pretty Things, if you wrapped it in an Oxfam leather jacket, stuck some brogues on it and added some tour-honed stubble you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. So, by definition, this effort from the Swedish five-piece is sub-Libertines three-star urch-rock which just leaves you yearning for the days when Pete was more interested in rock’n’roll than drugs’n’models.
