LR Rockets fire off another single, this time on Ctrl.Alt.Delete Records. Renee Loves Losers is the Buzzcocks locked in a cellar being jabbed with a cattle prod by some sadistic spark, while fireworks set off synths all around. At first I think it’s an unholy mess, but eventually I settle for it being pretty darn good. OK Let’s Talk ploughs a similar punk/new wave crossover furrow, but with less returns. It goes for the pummelling you into submission tack, but has little charm to back up this forthright stance.
Renee Loves Losers is released on September 7th on Ctrl.Alt.Delete Records
