Julian Casablancas to Keep Touring His Record as a Giant Middle Finger to All Strokes Fans

Strokes non-instrumentalist Julian Casablancas is prepared to go awfully far out of his way to prove to you and me that his ludicrous debut solo record, Phrazes for the Young, was really a good, well thought-out, masterful record and not the wonky, glittery, middling pile of crazy that it was.

And so, like George Costanza on his way to a fictitious home in the Hamptons, Julian Casablancas is calling our bluff and continuing to tour this thing down our throats like he means business, hoping that you and I will break before he does. Then again, his bandmates back in the studio just seem to be middle-fingering all Strokes fans also. Hmm. Alright. You wanna get nuts? Come on, let’s get nuts.
