Rock and Roll Report Blitz: Watts

Named after possibly one of the coolest cats in rock and roll, Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts, Watts is a very cool four-piece from Boston who manage to let their classic rock and roll influences like The Stones and the Cars mutate with the sounds of the Strokes and the Clash for a wonderfully rough but harmonic blast of rock and roll.

With 14 tracks on their 2007 release One Below The All Time Low they cover a lot of musical ground which makes it very difficult for me to decide what I want to play which is a true compliment (at least in my books!). Excellent stuff, modern with a nuanced nod to rock’s past and definitely a keeper. Have a listen to the tracks posted to their MySpace page at
