In the same way Art Brut is having a good time and it shows The Coathangers are doing it for the right reasons. They might not be around forever, so enjoy it while it lasts.
The same manic, don't know any better, energy, be your own pet has...the same thing is going on here, but with a keyboard. The songs are gleefully less produced and I could see going for everything they want to put out there.
They remind me of one of my favorite bands of all time, 'The Yips', who sadly went into a studio and just lost something...it was like two different bands...but that 7", 100% fox and bonfire in a dixie cup are some of the greatest things ever released.
That was me and my friends in high school, but we sucked.
This is a genuine good time, full of songs written in five minutes, and recorded in two...sometimes those can be the best.
The coathangers have a 7" for preorder at DieSlaughterhaus records.
They are coming to NYC soon, July 20th...I have to see the battles...poor me.
