The Weakends on Rob's House

The Weakends is some french punk, shitty no-fi blues courtesy of Rob's House, recorded/produced by Cheveu, so you get an idea of what we're going to be working with. You know that french garage rock scene that you've been hearing so much about? Right.
They are banging away, singing through broken PA's, sounding like a way cooler hot rod, 50's, b-movie band then you ever remember, or they sound like what those bands should have sounded like, but they were too self aware or just never that good.

This is being played in France? Seriously, these guys are not in it for the money.

Small Towns is just a rocking little repetitive screechy fuzzed out guitar number, David or Simon is yelling, snarling about something, the drums can endearingly barely keep up, they make it seem so easy, but don't sound like dicks. Recorded with a barely working cassette player, heavy on the treble, please.

A very reasonable $4 from
Rob's House.
