The Yeah Yeah Yeahs: Reclaim The Magic

Ken Scrudato, Filter, May 2006

AND THEN there were three. The three were called Brian, Nick and Karen (O), and together, they were also called the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Like a bolt from the blue they came streaking across the sky (okay, maybe not the sky), and unleashed a torrent of post-electroclash weirdo brilliance on a music scene that had been allowed to calcify, to become atrophied and stultified; that had, to put it mildly...lost the magic.

Total word count of piece: 1976
