The Courettes
Here Are The Courettes Sounds Of Subterrania 10"

Article written by Ged M - Aug 24, 2015

An 8 track 10” single, is this a short LP or a generous EP? It’s irrelevant when the Courettes are another incredible pair of garage-rockers. Flavia (“atomic fuzz” guitars, voice) and Martin (drums) are from Brazil and Denmark respectively, but owe much to the Medway towns (and the influence of one W Childish, esq) in their manic early beat stylings, unadorned by anything except Flavia’s screams and fuzz pedal.

‘I’ve Been Walking’ is simple, riffy and jungle-rocking while ‘The Boy I Love’ turns up the fuzz and the reverb, with a touch of girl-group pop to lighten the distortion. 'We Are Gonna Die’ is a fast and fuzzy duel between Flavia and guest vocalist Kim Kix. Generously, Kim also gets to sing the savage beat-pop of ‘Push It Too Hard’ (like Mick Green’s Pirates with extra brutality). The frantic ‘Shiver!’ seems to sum them up best: fast, frantic and with an animalistic savagery in the way they attack their instruments so that anything that can scream does.

A Danish-based band on a German label, this cries out for international acceptance but especially in the UK where they’ve taken our early beat-pop and distorted it into fabulous new garage-rock shapes.
