We can’t decide whether Austin Texas fuzz-pop-mongers Ringo Deathstar have the best or worst name we have ever heard! What we can decide on is the fact that their debut album Colour Trip is damn good.

Having formed in 2007 and channeling influences such as The Cure, The Smiths, Fugazi and The Velvet Underground, Ringo Deathstarr have previously released a batch of singles on both sides of the Atlantic and in Japan – a self titled EP in 2007 and most recently, in 2009, a brace of 7”s in the States, You Don’t Listen & In Love and a 9-track Japanese mini-album, Sparkler.


Recorded quickly and recalling the pop thrill and sonic squall of prime-time Mary Chain or Strawberry Wine era MBV, their debut album, Colour Trip, has already been lauded by the likes of Pitchfork and Nylon, who recently ran a double page spread on the band, over in the USA.

Ringo Deathstarr are: Elliott Frazier (guitars & vocals), Alex Gehring (bass & vocals), Daniel Coborn (drums).
