The Genius Better Known As The Strokes

The Strokes are without a doubt one of my favourite 2000s bands, their 2001 album 'Is this It?' is  my favourite album of the past 20 years. I anticipate that most people kno who they are (A Indie- Garage Rock Band) so i won't bore you with details of their brilliance.
All you need to know is that they are genius.

The Strokes are a american rock band formed in New York in 1999, with their membership including; Julian Casablancas (Singer), Nick Valensi (Lead Guitarist), Albert Hammond Jr (Guitarist) , Fabrizio Moretti (Drums),  Nikolai Fraiture (Bass).

Alongside Detroit Based geniuses The White Stripes they helped usher in a new era of Garage Rock, While their debut album 'Is This It?' was declared the 199th best album ever by rolling stone magazine while i consider it the 65th best album ever.


They Have Since Created 4 other albums with their latest 'comedown machine' being the best album of 2013 in my humble opinion


VIVA LA STROKES
