There's a lot of buzz behind Atlanta's DIY punk band, The Coathangers. They've only been around since July 2006 (!), but have made quite an impression in such a short time. They recently released their full length album yesterday (Sep 4th) on Rob's House Records label, so they might be coming to your town on their promotional tour. I've included their tour dates, so check them out and let me know how they were live - as they are going nowhere near me. I can only imagine these girls will have a pretty good time on stage.
I quickly became interested in them because of their constant comparison to Bikini Kill, the Slits, and other Riot Grrl-type bands (as you know I've been a long-time fan of this genre of music[W♥M])
Although the punk-sound is true on their debut album, I was kind of surprise to hear a Russian song called "Missing Letter", which is quite good. The song is about singer, Julia Kugel's grandmother.
In an interview for Stomp and Stammer Magazine, Kugel said:
"When I wrote the lyrics, I didn't want them to sound like a seven-year-old wrote them. I only got the education of a seven-year-old in Russia, so I didn't want them to sound trite. But this Russian friend of a friend was like, ‘Oh, the lyrics are really good!’ So that made me feel proud."
If you were wondering about the accordion in the song, it was purchased by Candice Jones for $10 at a Texas gas station.
The other song I've picked out for you is "Nestle in my Boobies", which reminds me of another band that I liked called Gravy Train!!!![W♥M] You can download this song, as well as others on their myspace.
