The Drones’s seventh album is a masterclass in genre-defying rock. No prisoners are taken. Louder Than War’s Joe Whyte reviews. This is not, some of you might be disappointed to hear, the Manchester punk rock Drones of “Bone Idol” infamy. This “other” Drones are from Melbourne, Australia and have been kicking up a storm of frenetic, dense literary rockin’ since their debut album “Here Comes The Lies” was released in 2002. The album that followed that, 2005’s “Wait Long By the River And Your Enemies Bodies Will Float By” established them as a real force to be reckoned with. Part Americana dust, part Crazy Horse electricity, part Stooges opiated grit and a huge dollop of don’t-actually-give-a-fuck-what-you-might-think. They took the attitude of The Birthday Party and the garage nous of Radio Birdman and welded it onto some quite stunning wordplay and huge, flame-spitting, Neil Young-meets-Dinosaur Jr songs. That album was multi-award winning and was played in it’s entirety by the band at the ATP Festival in 2009 to massive acclaim.
