How do you rebel against the wonders of life in the early twenty-first century?  The Internet?  The ever-expanding European Union and EMU?  The demise of the mighty dollar?

Euro-Rocabilly. 50’s style.

That was Kitty, Daisy & Lewis, opening for Coldplay this summer.  From Wikipedia:

“Kitty, Daisy & Lewis are a three-piece band comprising the teenage siblings of the Durham family.”

“Lewis Durham (19) is the middle child who sings and plays guitar, piano, banjo, lapsteel and drums. He collects and plays/DJ’s 78rpm records and has built a home studio for the band to record in. It consists of 1940’s and 50’s recording equipment such as 8 track tape machines and vintage BBC and RCA microphones. Kitty, Daisy and Lewis do not use computers or any digital format during the recording process.They live with their parents in Kentish Town, north London.”

How about the scene on the continent, you ask?  What about that erstwhile epicenter of the Cold War?  Let’s check in with Digger, Sam and Basti.  They are climbing the charts – iTunes: #2 in Germany and Switzerland, #6 in Austria.  WARNING: Significant Ohrworm risk!

You’ll have to start here for supplies before joining the rebellion.

Ah yes.  Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose. Globalization just makes it more fun.
