Elastica: From Hype To Eternity

Everett True, Melody Maker, 8 October 1994

ELASTICA were voted Best New Band in our Readers' Poll almost before the band had released a note. Why? Because you could tell just by looking at them they were going to sound great. Nine months and one hit record later, Elastica have signed a major label deal that should make them look and sound good all over the world. With their third single, 'Connection', about to come out, EVERETT TRUE asks JUSTINE FRISCHMANN about hype, life with Damon, the power of short songs, whether rich girls can sing the blues and how trogs from hell can ever be glamorous.
