The Libertines: Up the Bracket
Buy! - (Rough Trade)
While some might find this British band to be a more ramshackle version of the Strokes, the Libertines' propulsive garage-rock also recalls some of the first-generation British punk bands like the Jam, the Buzzcocks and the Clash (the album was produced by the Clash's Mick Jones). As with those bands, strong tunes carry the day on their promising debut album and ensure they'll likely be more than a flash in the pan. 3/15/2003 - Don Yates
