About Crystal Stilts
Crystal Stilts is a Brooklyn, N.Y., quartet. Its sound -- equally droll, moody and buoyant -- has roots in early '80s Manchester pop as well as in minimalist garage-rock acts. The band has drawn comparisons to Interpol, Joy Division and early The Jesus and Mary Chain -- with whom it also shares a penchant for stand-up drumming in the manner of The Velvet Underground's Maureen "Moe" Tucker. Formed in 2003 by Brad Hargett and JB Townsend, they released one single and an EP. Read more about Crystal Stilts on Last.fm.
