Take one part Rocky Horror, one part Ziggy Stardust, one pinch Iggy Pop and mix in one part Bat out of Hell era Meatloaf and you have Angry Inch the fictitious band featured in the film Hedwig and the Angry Inch.  The songs have a great live in the club feel to them that really captures the essence of an aspiring rock band and the glitter rock scene of the early 70's.  

The chief architect of the Angry Inch sound is songwriter Stephen Trask who also appears in the movie as lead vocalist Tommy Gnosis. The film is adapted from the off-Broadway rock musical of the same name. The basic crux of the story is focused on Hedwig an aspiring singer who had undergone a botched sex change operation that left her with an "Angry Inch", Hedwig teams up with Tommy Gnosis who later steals Hedwig's songs and becomes a huge star and Hedwig is left with her dreams of stardom. 

Remove the film and the associated storyline out of the picture and you are still left with a great collection of music. If you are interested in the whole package the film is currently in limited release across the U.S. and the soundtrack is available from Hybrid Recordings.
