Like the Strokes, the Hives, sharp melodies and a 'live' on record sound? The The Lyres are for you. Fronted by 'Monoman' Jeff Connolly, this band are finally getting the credit they deserve as garage rock comes back in vogue. It's a gritty, raw sounding album, with more great tunes on this, their first release, than most bands record in their lifetime. They never really hit these hights again, so if you fancy taking a dive into one of the major influences of modern garage rock, this is for you. Five stars is not enough, to do it justice!
