The article presents information about Nic Armstrong & The Thieves' "The Greatest White Liar" (by New West Records). Cut straight from the stylistic doth of the '60s and obviously emulating The Beatles and the Rolling Stones, this debut disc full of guitar--and vocal-driven tracks will appeal to lovers of retro rock, but those looking for a modern spin on the era, or an original voice, may feel only superficially sated. The band, comprising vocalist Nic Armstrong, drummer Jonny Aitken and bassist Shane Lawlor, has the talent to replicate the sound of their influences, but the thing that's missing most is this band's own distinctive voice.
