Ikara Colt : One Note

Old School British punk...

Camden’s Ikara Colt, who cut quite a dash in retro suits, skinny ties and trainers, may evoke a visual link with the The Strokes, but their tight shouty rock is more like old school British punk. And when we say old school British punk, what we actually mean isThe Fall. Pretty good, all in all. And they really do employ just one note throughout the 2 mins 17secs of the song – a lesson in economy to us all.
