There's a long piece in The Guardian today telling the story of how The Strokes conquered the UK in 2001. It's taken from Meet me in the Bathroom, the forthcoming oral history of that period of musical history by Lizzy Goodman. In honour of that Strokes get song of the day today. It's difficult to describe how exciting it was when their first records came out. For someone of my age because it brought back the thrill of the first generation CBGBs bands. For others, younger than me, because it was happening first time round.
