The Raveonettes – Whip It On

Clocking off at a fighting-fit 21 minutes, with a sequel promised soon, Raveonettes mastermind Sune Rose Wagner and accomplice Sharin Foo come on like a rockabilly Jesus And Mary Chain. Minor guitar chords clang gloomily through overloaded, feedbacking tracks as Wagner moans dissolutely. The pastiche garage-punk field is crammed, and the Reids’ life or death fury can’t be faked. But while it’s on, it works.
