MAJOR STARS - syntoptikon LP, Twisted Village




“Back? Indeed. Technically speaking this is the Major Stars fifth album in their nine year career, but it’s also the debut full length by the new expanded lineup. Kate Village and Wayne Rogers still hold down double guitar duty, but now are joined in the frontline guitar assault by ex-bassist Tom Leonard. Casey Keenan and Dave Dougan are the scrappy new rhythm section and Sandra Barrett, their bat-head biting lead singer. Heavier in number and in sound, the 6-strong Stars have already made waves with last year’s debut single Black Road and a handful of piledriving shows. This LP and the forthcoming US tour seal the deal. Get under or stay clear.”
