Album Review: Little Joy – Little Joy (Rough Trade)

It was always clear to me that Fabrizio Moretti was the coolest Stroke. Julian Casablancas tries too hard to be hip, and Nick Valensi looks far too much like Euro-trash to be from New York, which is totally uncool.

He’d tell me about his adventures from touring, we’d listen to old Velvet Underground records.

I don’t even like them that much (but I’d never tell Fab that).
