THE FLAMING STARS are a garage band. That’s garage as in loud guitars, valve amps, cheap electric organ and trashcan drums. They play live in the studio, live on the radio and live on stage. Formed in December 1994, they have regularly filled venues such as The Garage, and the LA2, and venues around the country, as well as playing sell-out tours around Europe, Japan and the US.
… manages to conjure the Jesus and Mary Chain, 50s swamp rock, and nights spent guzzling cheap wine and leaning unsteadily against a jukebox…
