Overview

From the scorching, punk-funk pulse of "Hey! Hey! Hey!" to the biting closer, "Revolution in Red," L.A.'s own Pleasure Club unveils one of 2004's finest records with The Fugitive Kind. Channeling vintage David Bowie, Marc Bolan, and Stiv Bators, James Hall is the kind of reckless, attitudinal frontman rock has been craving. And beneath his drug-addled street prose, like "I'm hi flyin'/Don't mind dyin'" (courtesy of the modern rock sugar shot "High Five Hit Me"), is a team of inventive, capable musicians as fluent in Gang of Four and Dramarama as Duran Duran and the Lords of the New Church. The irresistible stomp of "Streetwalkers Anthem" almost makes you forget the desolate, desperate tales of teenage hookers turning tricks for dope, while the barrio-skank of "On Holy Land" gets to the heart of Pleasure Club's broad range. If their influences are retro, they still sound brand new in the same exhilarating way that Hot Hot Heat does. An instant classic.
