Where would rock be without pretentious art school graduates bearing extraneous punctuation? Stellastarr* and their preposterous asterisk come straight from Brooklyn's Pratt Institute, where you imagine their studies included a module entitled, Got Any Cure?: Understanding the Indie Disco 1980-1987. Their strength, as well as weakness, is their fidgety dilettantism. Although they can generate a gothic tombstone rumble as convincingly as fellow New Yorkers Interpol, they prefer to keep moving, throwing in fresh hooks at every turn and making no secret of their influences.
