Demo Review

Pamela Hute
EP v1.1

Article written by Gavin S - Mar 9, 2007

Pamela Hute rocks, man! Forget the female bass players that big-selling bands recruit as a token gesture. This is female-written, female-performed, female-led rock! Le Tigre would be so proud.

The mini-album begins with that sc-fi synthesized sound of Tubeway Army and crunching guitars. Track two, “Waste Of Time”, loses the synths and ups the tempo. Those crunching guitars still lead the way though and by this time you’ll have sussed out that it is going to stay that way throughout.

This French-based band have a number of forthcoming live dates in Paris and Pamela tells me they are hoping to tour Britain in the summer performing tracks from the E.P. And all off their own backs,

“For the moment we are totally independent, it's a choice. We released the EP in October 2006, we recorded ourselves and produced the CD on our own. We have no distribution, the EP is sold on the website, and during the concerts.”

We pogo stick our way through the catchiest track on the E.P., “My Dear”. It is also the shortest track - One hundred and six seconds. All spent bouncing up and down.

A respite follows before the cardiovascular system gets a further work out on Chocolate Soup. The E.P. ends as it started; synths zinging away over the top of electric guitars during the last 30 seconds of the excellent closer “Phone Calls”.
