Carrying on the grand tradition of rings from northern Ohio led by writers from rock and roll magazines — discover also: the Pretenders (Chrissie Hynde), Pere Ubu (Peter Laughner), etc. — Cleveland’s the Lovekill certainly are a jittery but melodic indie rock and roll outfit with solid U.K. post-punk affects, led by previous Alternate Press editor Jonah Bayer (acoustic guitar) and Acoustic guitar Globe contributor Chris Rager (acoustic guitar, vocals). Bassist Carla Cherry will keep it in the family members, being wedded to Rolling Rock staffer Robert Cherry; just drummer Craig Ramsey can be a civilian. The Lovekill shaped in 2002, its people having played in a number of regional hardcore and indie rings previously. Brazenly committing number 1 one of many biggest rock and roll article writer faux pas, Rager handed a Lovekill demonstration to Thursday night lead vocalist Geoff Rickly during an interview; instead of pitching it right into a roadside dumpster next time the tour vehicle got swamped out, Rickly authorized the Lovekill to Astro Magnetics, the vanity imprint he maintains at Thursday’s previous indie label, Eyeball Information. Continuing the tendency of acknowledging a hands from competent rings, the Lovekill moved into the studio room with previous Cursive guitarist Steve Pederson, who created the band’s debut recording, These Occasions Are Momentum, released in summer season 2006.
