Welcome once more to Kamikaze's! club 444...surely the only thing in the world that isn't going up in price? Budget schmudget.

We're all going to hell in a handcart. Ha! Happily Strangetime or StRANGEtIME to do it all proper like, would make a rather good soundtrack to our journey bowelwards.

Lead StRANGE Kate Finch posses the greatest yelp since Lene Lovich informed us that her lucky number was one...or was it two...? Ahhh t'was all so long ago. There's a hint of Hazel O'Connor in there and, for younger readers, a bit of Be Your Own Pet and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs too.

I really enjoyed their set, in particular a short spikey little ditty that may have been called 'Why Do You Bother'...which I'm thinking of adopting as my theme tune.

I loved the fact that, when they were told they only had time for one more track, they cunningly melted one into another so they could squeeze two in. That shows a band that wants to get places. Bravo. - The Hearing Aid (@ Blogspot.com)

Bio

StRANGEtIME are female-fronted, alternative rock trio from the UK.

The band's sound has roots in modern commercial and underground rock, punk, post-punk, metal, proggy-noise, pop, indie, and grunge. Basically, anything good and guitar-based from the last 30 years.

StRANGEtIME have been gigging in this line-up since late 2008 after recruiting drummer Marty Gallagher. They've been gigging relentlessly ever since, as well as quickly writing and refining their set. They've discovered a brand new, successful chemistry.

The band is fronted by singer/song-writer and guitarist Kate Finch; a distinctive vocalist with a delivery reminiscent of Patti Smith, PJ Harvey, and big influence Siousxie.

There's a dichotomy to StRANGEtIME. There are shades of dark and light. Aggression and insecurity. Pop sensibilities and a lust for emotive noise. This polarity is, in the opinion of StRANGEtIME, at the heart of some of the greats.

The bands influences are similar enough to overlap, and varied enough to add some vital creative spark and surprises in the songwriting process.

One or more of the band like each of these bands:

Pixies, Shellac, The Damned, Billy Talent, Minus The Bear, Nirvana, Sunny Day Real Estate, Future Of The Left, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Siousxie & The Banshees, Smashing Pumpkins, Bowie, Rise Against, Therapy, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Silversun Pickups, Grinderman, QOTSA, Biffy Clyro, Interpol, Mortis, Dead Kennedy's, 36 Crazyfists, PJ Harvey.
