The Rantouls - In The Village of Rantoul - Cassette


While '90s bands like the Mummies and Supercharger mastered the garage punk aesthetic characterized by slurred lyrics and sloppy blues scale solos, the Rantouls have opted for a more jingle-pop-oriented sound, replete with vocal harmonies and Mersey beat rhythms. "Any band today who does '60s stuff - it just pales in comparison to real '60s groups," Rantouls singer-guitarist Gavin May says. "We're trying to be a teenage garage band even though we're adults."
