The Struts’ Luke Spiller: In-store with TVD at DC’s Som Records

PHOTOS: RICHIE DOWNSIf there’s one thing that makes us happy to no end of late, it’s the return of good ol’ glam rock and roll to the airwaves, record stores, and turntables—and if there’s one band at its fore, it’s the UK four-piece The Struts who Dave Grohl famously cited as the Foo Fighters favorite support band (which says a thing or twenty as we’ve caught Social Distortion, The Joy Formidable, and Supergrass all open for the Foos over the years).

Now, allow us to be candid—the shelves in our office are teeming with records from within a ’70s sweet spot. (Get it?) Bowie, Queen, T. Rex, Slade, Mott, The Dolls, Alice Cooper, KISS, Elton, and yea Sweet, all still in heavy rotation. So, The Struts connected right right away–not just channeling this glitter era but contemporizing these sounds with hooks and earworms for days.

So, it was with great enthusiasm that we were joined by The Struts’ main main Luke Spiller at DC’s Som Records prior to the band’s well sold out show in Washington, DC late in 2018 for a binge in the record bins thinking Luke’s taste in records would fall in line with ours. And spoiler—yep, we’re simpatico.

So, down the stairs, shall we? We’re record shopping with The Struts’ Luke Spiller at DC’s Som Records.

The Struts’ Young & Dangerous is in stores now—on vinyl.
