    [engl] The fourth LP by frenglish plague Curlee Wurlee!: 14 organ driven originals in english and french, from garage punk to moody beat, plus some exotica and weirdo surprises. "The Franco-German combo Curlee Wurlee! have been together for ages but unlike you, they're still as young and fresh as ever, and their sound is as juvenile as a teenager's bedroom: a heated mixture of joy, anger, sadness, love, hate, acne, organ, guitars and confidence. If you know Curlee Wurlee!, you need this album because it is gigantic. If for some reason you don't know them yet, then the more reason”. (Kai Becker - The Wrong Society) “This album is good and brilliant, the songs show diversity and have integrity, no other "neo-garage" band has this sound. I love the vocals and believe me, it's way cool to sing in English and French. Be proud!” What happens if you give Cécile, Ralph, Holger and Michael (1) a screaming organ, (2) a twangy guitar, (3) an electric brontosaurus bass and (4) a Stone Age tom-tom drum kit? Well the answer is 14 brilliant, sizzling garage songs that give YOUR ears and mind a roller-coaster ride of the best up to date pop and garage sounds I’ve come across for a long time on this little grain of sand of planet called Tellus. It’s been said before, but lower the stylus, crank up the volume and spread the good music of Curlee Wurlee! to yourself and your neighbours! (Jens Lindberg - The Maharajas)

    [engl] The lost Dead Kennedy recordings? Nope! The debut of Hank Robot & The Ethnics, a Powersolo side project, that doesn't seem to take things too serious and rather blast out a 12 track party record which should leave you with a smile on your face. Label info:"A couple of months ago, I had the honour of DJ-ing at a Powersolo show and heard, saw and understood (I guess) that night their wonderful ability of going beyond borders, underlined by their huge sense of absurdity. I loved these guys. A short while later, Sir Kim Kix sent me some recordings of another of his bands, HANK ROBOT & THE ETHNICS, and for the first time ever since I heard Destruction Unit (that album you listen to when being seriously hopeless), I had the feeling I could destroy walls and felt frankly relieved. On first listening, you will get a little hint of the Dead Kennedys - especially with their bombastic hit “Homba” -, but don't get fooled: that's only a "trompe l'oreille" and it soon disappears. There was something more, way much more, something making me feel like “I'm in love and I feel fine”. Some might call it punk. Well, I guess that's punk, yes! But punk with some nice surprises too... (don't ask, these are surprises). “Lightning Bolt” has this typical fantasy which doesn't readily fit any musical genre, and which I love with Kim Kix. While the opener "Where Are You Gonna Go" might sound modern, well, it is aaaaactually constructed like a wonderful repetitive 60s garage fuzzy tune. It just had to become a Moody Monkey thingy! Thank you Hank & The Ethnics! The really cool artwork is designed by Martin Thorsen of The Courettes. Bobby McBride once referred to Hank’s set as “a bad nightmare in human musical form”, adding that it is still true today. “Hank Robot of course is Kim Kix of Powersolo. They are dirty, nasty desperate men, hell bent on destruction. They kind of breach a gap between psychobilly, punk, surf, garage and trashy French pop. Hank Robot is not by a long-shot the only band Kim Kix has aside from Powersolo, but it’s my favourite and I’m sticking to it. Robot has been teasing an album for a few months now – he’s been getting drunk and laying down tracks. He’s been sleeping on stairs, he’s that unwelcome house guest or that uncle you had who gave you your first cigarette, a sip of beer and an Iggy Pop tape. You dig him. You get him. After recruiting Anders Birkekær from Dro?n and Per Silkjær of Fossils, Hank and his juiced up crew headed into the studio and recorded 12 punk songs – the first of which is “Homba” – which according to Robot: “it’s a true story”. It’s a frenetic old school hardcore punk song, not too far away from vintage Dead Kennedys and Dead Milkmen – the good old shit. If “Homba” is any indication of what’s to come – I’m stoked. What a fucking slice of authentic trash this is. The whole world is looking at Aarhus for ‘punk’ music – we might as well keep dishing it up with Hank Robot to shit it out to the masses with his new band: The Ethnics.“ Bobby McBride

    [engl] The SICK HYENAS are a young German trio formed in Hamburg in 2012 and with this debut LP they deliver their different facets of punky, psychedelic, beaty garage tunes with juvenile and powerful vocals, a wide range of all facilities from moody to happy lyrics, all speeds and lengths from 20 seconds to 3'49 with a talent for surprising breaks and some kinda sloppiness. Go ahead and check the album here.
