So the Killers are now on record as insisting the (admittedly marginally inferior) Bravery are not a real new wave band or something? What the hell is real new wave? Isn't fakeness new wave's whole point? And what, so suddenly now writing a single chorus that rips off Bowie's "Queen Bitch" turns Vegas pretty boys into Iggy and the Fucking Stooges? Either way, I dare the Killers to take on any nuevo new wave band below. Oneida, for instance: who, in the midst of reining in their long long-windedly heavy pretensions into dainty brevity, initiate the hot 2005 trend (to be advanced in May by the Hold Steady) of fine New York rock outfits performing songs about people named Charlemagne.
