Radio 4
Stealing Of A Nation
(City Slang 13/09/04)

The New York rock sound gets shaken up and transformed by a whirlwind of funky bass, the dirty garage punk vocals of Anthony Roman and Tommy Williams and pulsing drum beats. Angry and thoughtful lyrics are delivered with deft precision to help produce funky tunes that dispel an old myth by proving that you can learn and have fun, as it is impossible not to sway and think at the same time to tracks like ‘Nation’, ‘State Of Alert’ and “(Give Me All Your) Money.

Radio 4 - Stealing Of A Nation - Album Review

The rasping Radio 4 have taken up the mantle from fellow New Yorkers The Rapture and, are set buzz into the mind of listeners seeking some jive friendly garage punk.

The inclusion of John Foxx style electro beats in 'Dismiss The Sound' towards the end of the album, sees the nifty New Yorkers incorporating a frenetic and catchy number that will ignite spark of hope for the faltering electro genre. At the other end of the scale; 'Coming Up empty' provides a slow and thoughtful, yet still sharp finale to a neat and vibrant offering.
