“There is a direct line between My Bloody Valentine, the Jesus and Mary Chain and Ringo Deathstarr. And it stops at Slowdive Central. If you retain any fondness for those three – and are mentally aroused by a spot of melody-heavy guitar pop – you will adore the ‘Starr.” THE GUARDIAN
“It’s a shame we do not live in a world in which Ringo Deathstarr is the name of Liam Gallagher’s new band.” NME
“The band sounds like it leaped screaming out of My Bloody Valentine’s blown amps.” WIRED
“Their pulsing layers of feedback and those droll, deadpan vocals are ripped
straight from Psychocandy, but the galloping, amphetamine rhythms are
harder charging than even the most amped up track on that album.” Pitchfork
Ringo Deathstarr are: Elliott Frazier (guitars & vocals), Alex Gehring (bass & vocals), Daniel Coborn (drums).
