OK, OK I know what you are thinking: "great -another 60's sounding garage rock and roll band, with 'the' before their names to seem even more retro and kitsch." Well, yes, to a certain degree you are right, but hey, never judge a book by it's cover or a band by it's name. The Ravonettes ARE fantastic: they have a crisp 60's sound replete with the obligatory hand claps, whilst loud guitars joust with male and female vocals. Thankfully, The Ravonettes don't rely on fuzzy guitar pedals to make themselves sound more retro; they do it simply from singing, and the melodies that rise and fall sound like they should come from a 1960's B-movie.
If this music doesn't make you want to steal/borrow a big motorcycle and ride across the US of A in an easy-rider-1960's-kinda-way, then The Ravonettes are possibly not for you. If, however, it does, then I'll meet you at the dodgy bikers' bar at sundown.
