Spotlight – 44: 雅だよ雅

Someone linked me to this on Facebook, thus proving that 1) I’m ridiculously easy to please and 2) My taste is way predictable.

I mean, this stuff is marvellous – like the exact middle-ground between Bikini Kill and my fearsomely competent noise sweethearts Afrirampo, only not quite so. I don’t understand what’s going on here whatsoever, but – as Thurston Moore oddly emailed me the other day to state – “I don’t want music, I want pain”. You’d shove this on a mix CD of cute pop to really piss off your lover.

Fuck, I’d go see them play live if they were nearby!

    Hi ET. I always thought you might like Hand Hell (http://www.myspace.com/handhell) and Kirsty and Rene's earlier band The Bites (http://www.myspace.com/haveyoubeenbitten).

    Hand Hell were NZ pop (via Melbourne) + sludgy bass meets Nico. The Bites were a bit looser in places but were just as good (or maybe better) but I don't think they have their best stuff on their profile.
