Chat And Business (2002), 6.5/10
Modern Apprentice (2004), 6.5/10

Ikara Colt are a band from London (guitarist Claire Ingram, vocalist Paul Resende) that plays retro` rock'n'roll, the fad of the 2000s. Propelled by the single Sink Venice, the album Chat And Business (Epitaph, 2002) was no more original than many garage-rock albums of the 1980s: it just happened to come out at the right time. But, compared with the Strokes, they are angrier, nastier and noisier. Their models are the Sex Pistols, the Stooges and Sonic Youth.

Modern Apprentice (Fantastic Plastic, 2004) pours down another dose of rock'n'roll numbers (I'm With Stupid, Automatic, Wanna Be That Way) but the band has also matured enough to experiment with arrangement and dynamics (Waste Ground, Modern Feeling).

(Translation by/ Tradotto da Carlo Cravero)

I londinesi Ikara Colt (Claire Ingram alla chitarra, Paul Resende alla voce) suonano un rock'n'roll dal gusto retr• (la moda di inizio millennio). Spinto dal singolo Sink Venice, l'album Chat And Business (Epitaph, 2002) non Š certo pi— originale di molti dischi garage-rock pubblicati negli anni '80: solo Š uscito al momento giusto.
