before they were The Walkmen they were Jonathan Fire*Eater…or most of them were. back in 1997 they were supposed to be the next big thing. the Strokes before the Strokes. it didn’t happen. it never happens when they say it’s gonna happen. back then i always thought they sounded like if the Make Up trying to be a Velvet Underground tribute band…now they just sort of sound like a funkier version of the Walkmen. anyways this EP is really good, better than their major label debut that didn’t make them the next big thing. “Search For Cherry Red” was my indie rock jam for like 2 years.
