Drunks from Down Under take over the garage: Jet's Get Born

Metal Mike Saunders, The Village Voice, 6 April 2004

WELL! MY MY MY. Let's take a head count of the biggest names in the way overhyped "garage band" revival: the Hives, the Strokes, the White Stripes (Lee Michaels with Frosty rocked harder), the Vines, the Yeah Yuppy Yups, and about 17 lesser lights. (I understand at least seven people stateside like Sweden's Mando Diao.)

Total word count of piece: 613
