Les Suzards “S/T”

Judging from the name of the band, I would have never expected them to play this kind of rock’n’roll. For your information, Suze is a famous French/Swiss old-school alcoholic drink. Despite their admiration for this drink, the power trio from the West of France has been on a steady DOGS/NY DOLLS diet too.
Opening track “Hate Me” sounds like a mix of The BRIEFS and NEUROTIC SWINGERS, an adrenaline shot right from the start, and it won’t calm down with “Mojo Night”, and “Searchin'” that will please every DOGS fan around for sure.
The album was recorded by JERRY SPIDER GANG‘s Lo Spider, and it seems like it was the right choice, since you can feel the live energy through the whole album.
Put your best slim buttoned jacket on, have a Suze, and get your kicks from “Business Kids” and “You Kill Me”, you won’t regret it!
This fine record is out on German punk rock’n’roll label Wanda Record, and the band is tourin’ Europe right now, so go and check them out if you can./Laurent C.

Flying Over “We Are Outsiders”

FlyingOverFLYING OVER, from Bordeaux, France have been playing for a long time (they started back in 1996!), but as crazy as it sounds, I never had the chance to listen to them or see them live before… Mostly influenced by the rock music scene from ’77 (early punk) to early 80s (American new wave) and garage, the band sometimes evokes The BRIEFS (“Outsiders”, “You Don’t Know My Worst”) or even BLONDIE (“Nothing Should Be Long.”)
Snotty female/male vocals, speed-up tempos and RAMONES guitar riff and danceable (sometimes in a CRAMPS way) tunes (“Back Up Of My Life”, “TV Tower”, “I am Not a Substitute”…) you’ll get all the ingredients that make this style loveable. It all reminds me the early 00s when there was actually a scene in France for that style, remember the NEUROTIC SWINGERS? The HATEPINKS…? Of course, we also can’t forget to mention the legendary T.V KILLERS (from the same area.)
They admit they sold their soul to rock’n’roll, so check FLYING OVER get your fun fix!/Laurent C.
