The Strypes: The Irish Teens Giving Rock N' Roll A Kick In The Arse

They've been dubbed Ireland's answer to The Beatles, their first single was a cover of The Fab Four's "You Can't Do That", but this tune shows that they're no tribute act.

In a musical climate where everything is loop pedals and sampling, sometimes it's nice to say "fuck off" to all of that and bring everything back to basics, which this tune does brilliantly. Ok, so it's another cover, the little scamps turning their attentions from The Beatles to Bo Diddley, but they make it sound unique and fresh whilst still doing justice to the original. The fact they even know who Bo Diddley is should be a cause for celebration!

Check out their Facebook and follow them on Twitter. They'll be playing their first London date on May 6th at the 229 Club on Great Portland Street, before travelling to Spain, France, Japan and all over their native Ireland for more dates this year.

Oh, and by the way, in case you hadn't guessed from the video, they're all sickeningly young, not one of them is old enough to buy a pint yet. Fuck's sake.
