Kick the power out by The Hong Kong Dollars

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The Hong Kong Dollars are the music of Mike Dollars, in collaboration with other musicians including his sister, Anne Dollars, Sands 1 and 2, Will Dollars, Noel, Dan and Joe . 

“From influences including the Clash, The Buzzcocks, Dire Straits, The Pretenders, and Talk Talk through Joan Armatrading, Cole Porter, Mike Muir and Megadeth their sound blends the jangle of indie, the punch of punk [mit] darker undertones…

…there is both innocence and wry wisdom across the debut album of The Hong Kong Dollars. In the tradition of many an indie band their songs are built in the place between the every-day and the day-dream; wistful, occasionally whimsical, with just enough cynical humour to anchor closer to punk than twee.”
