That's Mister Attack to You

Like their Swedish elders the Hives, these young Danish mods take their Sixties garage-R&B assault seriously: They recorded this brazenly titled album in mono with White Stripes producer Liam Watson. Thee Attacks are also solid songwriters who personalize their debts to the Who and the Kinks with thoroughly modern enthusiasm: the jungle-drum and slashing-treble mettle of "Love in Disguise," the cocky groove running under the moody blues in "Love in the City." You'll have to imagine the windmill-arm gymnastics and midair scissor kicks — until Thee Attacks come to burn down your town in person.
