The Love Me Nots
In 2008, the Love Me Nots released a record called Detroit, helmed by noted Detroit-based producer Jim Diamond, who in the past has worked with the White Stripes (also from Detroit) and the Dirtbombs (yep, Detroit), and full of the type of unrestrained garage rock that youd expect from, here it comes, Detroit. But the Love Me Nots are actually from Phoenix and despite being more familiar with saguaros than auto manufacturing, theyve managed to produce three authentically raw records that defy conventional geographical boundaries. Buoyed by the undeniable vocal power of lead singer Nicole Laurenne and backed by drummer Bob Hoaga former member of the Ataris, as random as that may seemthe quartet explode with endearing energy on tracks like Do What You Do, the opening number on their latest full-length, last years Upsidedown Insideout.
