“Don’t Give Up”/“Sister Rosetta (Capture The Spirit)”

If Noisettes’ music were meant for a movie, it would probably be one of those kick-ass movies with motorcycles and bar fights. I’ve had to fight the temptation to break a beer bottle over someone’s head whenever “Don’t Give Up” comes on. This is actually pretty frustrating since I don’t drink beer-- there’s never a bottle in sight. The song is a sweat filled, garage rock romp-fest, the stuff trouble makers listen to when they’re looking for trouble. “Sister Rosetta (Capture The Spirit),” with its knee slapping rockabilly beat and lines like “We compliment each other just like Satan and Christ”, knows no good either. It starts off swing dance style, but wastes no time launching into power-chord punk-rock on the chorus. It wouldn't be enough if the London trio only knew how to rock, their secret weapon lies in lead singer Shingai Shoniwa; she’s got a fiery attitude and a soulful voice to match. What’s The Time Mr.Wolf? comes out tomorrow (4/17)-- don’t be surprised if you see an increase in local bar brawls.
