Havana Guns

Had forgotten all about this single until it came on random on the ipod yesterday.

Havana Guns were a band from London, who after releasing one self funded single entitled She Always Goes Down were thrust into the limelight and lauded as the next great indie band. The NME not prone to exaggeration called them "the Blondie for the Libertines generation". However they released one more single N.Y.C.S. and then disbanded last year.

This sort of fits in with yesterday's post as the Raveonettes are cited as one of their influences along with the usual suspects The Velvet Underground and The Jesus and Mary Chain.

Havana Guns - N.Y.C.S

Havana Guns - I Want To Die

BTW if anybody has a copy of the first single for sale at a reasonable price drop me a email.
