Live Tonight: The Love Bullets

The Love Bullets don’t sound like any other band in Providence. Call it electronic guitar pastoral, or noir wave, or whatever. Their sound is a dark mix of chittering, gurgling electronic drums, synths, and burning, fuzz guitar all stretched out underneath a beautiful baritone voice almost Morrison-esque in its black crooning.

Get to know Joe Strummer. [youtube:] If all you know about Joe Strummer is that he was the lead singer for the The Clash then go pick up Rock Art and the X-Ray Style, Global A Go-Go, or Streetcore the albums he recorded with his get-up The Mescaleros.
