The early 21st-Century garage rock revival was, like a lot of garage rock itself, fun but anticlimactic. Many bands signed and dropped; hardly any sustained careers. Dublin-based Little Steven faves The Urges enter this fray about five years too late to gain even a bit of fleeting fame, but their grimy, trebly romps are pleasurable enough for anybody who still dances to this stuff . The reissue of Protomartyr's first album No Passion All Technique offers early signs of the band they would become on subsequent albums.
