Bag Raiders – Shooting Stars
Somewhere at the intersection of Scissor Sisters and Wham! exists a band called Bag Raiders. Like all good nu disco (Sneaky Sound System, The Avalanches, Miami Horror), they’re from Australia. DJs Chris Stracey and Jack Glass comprise this duo, who, naturally, are labelmates with The Avalanches on Modular. They’ve had considerable success in Australia and are gaining popularity in America as the 80s nostalgia surges (see Ford & Lopatin). I’ve got a feeling they’ll make a good impression. After all, who doesn’t like a band whose interests are “chili, bill murray.” We can’t wait to catch them at Kanrocksas!
