Me Thinks The Poison Done Already Killed Billy Boy

Me Thinks The Poison Done Already Killed Billy Boy:
Billy Boy On Poison
Drama Junkie Queen

No word of any recent activity on Billy Boy On Poison. If you didn't watch closely you might have missed them altogether. They were a quick flash but I liked the tune I posted up a couple of years ago. Check it out HERE
New York scuzz-rock by way of the Sunset Strip, Billy Boy on Poison feel as if they were concocted in a laboratory, assembled from elements of every rock trend since 1994. Take a bit of the Strokes' tight, efficient new wave art-punk and downtown hipster sensibility; add a bit of hooks borrowed from Oasis, a little disco-rock from Franz Ferdinand, enough ironic hair metal thievery to get them on the radio à la Hinder, and a bit of Jet's three-chord bounce; and season with Jack White guitar solos and stairstep classic rock riffs reworked from Hendrix and the Beatles -- and you'll have Drama Junkie Queen, an exercise in trash-rock. Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
