Holograms - ABC City - Swedish electro-punk?


Like some weird mix of Joy Division and Sham 69 -- yikes! -- Stockholm's Holograms gave me a reason to smile today.

This is great stuff. There's a touch of early Boys Next Door (Nick Cave's pre-Birthday Party band) mixed with most of the stuff that U2 was ripping off when they were recording their pre-Boy tracks.

Holograms are on the hip Captured Tracks label and they are surely a band to follow.

I'm hooked!
