  1. yeah, i went on their myspace and they sound nothing like the strokes.

    is it just me or does the third member from the left (nick?) look a bit like joe francis?

  2. I really disagree. As an obvious Strokes fan, I found myself thinking the lead singer sounded like Julian during the live show and the reggae influence in both bands links them together.
