You might expect–with an uppity-sounding name like the Royal Court of China–that these guys would be yet another panty-waisted synth duo creating namby-pamby dance sounds for high-fashion losers.

The straight-ahead boogie of the Georgia Satellites meets the clever raunch of Guns N’ Roses. Check it out.
