Biography

Gossip is whispered, cigarettes are smoked, arms are crossed and uncrossed, and then the band takes the stage. An anticipation and hush that could only be described as electric takes hold.

A beat begins - minimal, sparse. Single white beams cast shadows against the ceiling and crowd. What could either be hours or minutes later, the kraut-rock intro turns to verse and the crowd begins to ... Read more in Amazon's She Wants Revenge Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

If the comics on Saturday Night Live ever wanted to spoof the current line of mascara-painted '80s revivalists such as the Killers and Bravery, it's unlikely their efforts would be nearly as successful as She Wants Revenge. It's not that the Los Angeles duo made up of party DJ Adam Bravin and former De La Soul copycat Justin Warfield means for its self-titled debut to be funny. But the group's one-note impression of dark new wave acts like Joy Division, The Cure and Bauhaus is just so blatant--from the ominous bass-lines and fawning band name (Peter Hook's New Order side project was called Revenge) to song titles such as "Tear You Apart" (Ian Curtis fans would be right to notice the similarities to their beloved "Love Will Tear Us Apart") and Goth 101 lyrics ("Take your hand, and smack me in the mouth, my love") -- it's hard not to laugh. --Aidin Vaziri

Product Description

Justin Warfield and Adam Bravin (aka DJ Adam 12) met as kids in the San Fernando Valley in 1986. Growing up listening to everything from Run DMC and Public Enemy to The Cure, Prince and Depeche Mode, they would each develop as musicians, djs and producers, pursuing critically acclaimed careers, each in their own right. They assembled a live band to accompany them, and after only 3 mind-blowing hometown shows, set out on two legs of the North American Bloc Party tour. Since then they have played in the UK, and have begun to amass a sizeable local following in Los Angeles, opening for such acts as The Raveonettes, Moving Units, The Kills, Bloc Party, and OK Go. Geffen. 2006.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Killers? Nah - Much better than that... March 29, 2006
Format:Audio CD
It seems to me that She Wants Revenge have been taking some heat by the press - heat which is rather undeserved in my opinion. So they're not the most original band on the planet, but who is original these days? They're easily pigeonholed into the '80s revival genre which has been trendy for about 2 or 3 years now, but that's no reason to write them off.

She Wants Revenge seem to have invited surprising (IMO) comparisons to the Killers, the band credited with becoming the first huge stars of the aforementioned movement. Let's see - The Killers have rather shallow lyrics (which you know from the chorus of "Somebody Told Me"), sound like a total Duran Duran knockoff, and all of the members weren't even born until after Ian Curtis of Joy Division committed suicide and were just coming into this world when Depeche Mode released their first album ... so if you ask me, these guys are rather undeserving of their credibility.

She Wants Revenge, on the other hand, have a more moody, atmospheric sound that has far more in common with Joy Division, Depeche Mode, even Bauhaus (when I first heard opening track "Red Flags And Long Nights", I was waiting for them to start singing "Bela Lugosi Is Dead") than Duran Duran. There's also a few songs that are more percussive and channel a vibe reminiscent of New Order, like "I Don't Wanna Fall In Love". While the lyrics aren't always top-notch, they are engaging and far less repetitive than some other bands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ode to the Album that Rips off 1000 other bands... February 26, 2006
By betula
Format:Audio CD
I really like this album; I like the music, I like the lyrics (I think they blend prosaic, dark, and elegant words wonderfully with equally interesting music) - but most of all I am amazed by the reviews I have found on Amazon: Three groups of people (a) "I give it a 1, this is a fake", (b) "I give it a 4, clearly has a lot of influences but I still like it, and (c) "I give it a 5 - it is spectacular."

And who are they immitating? Interpol? Joy Division? Bauhuas? the Cure? I clearly am not well versed in the popular music literature because people seemed to blame She Wants Revenge for ripping off just about any band that has had a song that sounds like them - personally, I think if they are IN FACT able to integrate the some 3 dozen bands mentioned here, just on Amazon, then we should be praising them as musical geniuses: using old influences to create something unique that (apparently) can't be accurately placed on any one artist...well isn't that what art is?

I would love it if Amazon started working Professor Mikhail Gronas's rating system - this debut album certainly is controversial enough to burn a hole into the music world and I absolutely love it.

She Wants Revenge consists of Adam Bravin and Justin Warfield. Working with drum machines and an array of keyboards and synthesizers, augmented by the occasional electric guitar, the duo has gradually been building buzz in the last 18 months. This is their debut album.

"She Wants Revenge" (10 tracks, plus one hidden track; 64 min.) is so deeply rooted in Joy Division and early New Order, you are going to enjoy this album tremendously if you like those bands. If you don't, don't waste your time or money. There are really no weak tracks as such. First single "These Things" is an enjoyable hum-along. "Out of Control" is a great club-song ("The Lights That Move Sideways and Up and Down/The Beat Takes You Over and Spins You Round"). The best is saved for last: first there is the new single "Tear You Apart", which both musically and lyrically is a derivative of Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart", but oh so catchy! Then there is the "hidden" bonus track, which plays as track 66 on my CD player, a great 7+ min. epic song and a perfect way to end the album.

While She Wants Revenge often gets mentioned along the same lines as Interpol due to the connection to/influence by, musically She Wants Revenge is in fact much closer to, say, the Faint. I saw She Wants Revenge live about a year ago, and immediately took a liking to their music. The debut album is finally out, and one of the best releases of early 2006. BUY IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars sinister, sensual and intriguing July 29, 2006
By Q
Format:Audio CD
She Wants Revenge lyrics are like glimpses into the tiny pieces that make up relationships. The fact that you only see these pieces make them more intriguing.

The music is extremely sensual with a sinister edge that creates an intoxicating mix. The tracks are great to just sit back and feel without analyzing.

If you are the impatient type this CD may not be to your liking. The songs will proceed at their own pace.

I first heard "Tear You Apart" on satellite radio and thought it would be my favorite on the CD. Now I can't pick just one track. It would be awesome to hear more fast songs like "I Don't Wanna Fall in Love" in a future CD. "These Things" and "Sister" have imaginative lyrics. However, "She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not" is more of a ballad and not to my taste.

The biggest surprise for me was when I saw them perform. I had no idea what to expect because I knew nothing about the group. Yet their performance perfectly matched what I had pictured from listening to the CD. Creepy - but in a good way!
