Las Furias “Sudor De Hembra” 10″

lasFurias4 songs on a 10″ vinyl, released by Dirty Witch Records/GPS Productions/Urgence Disk Records. LAS FURIAS is an all girl trio from Barcelona, Spain, and it seems like they already rocked quite a few stages around Europe, opening for MC5, NINA HAGEN or The CYNICS. The band’s music definitely fits into the Spanish rock’n’roll scene, mixing garage sounds to the raw energy of punk rock. You’ll even get some AC/DC/NASHVILLE PUSSY speed-up kind of guitars and a surf rock song to make you dance. Unfortunately, I can’t really get into details since I got a promo CD that doesn’t include the song titles…
Anyway, let the music do the talking, LAS FURIAS are definitely worth checking out!/Laurent C.

Cellulite Star “Explicit Attitude”

This isn’t really a new album (it was released in 2008), but I only got to listen to it now, and its worth being reviewed in those pages! Indeed, this all-girl band from Italy definitely deserves your attention. If you like the RUNAWAYS, then you will enjoy “Shake Your Music”, and if you’re a DONNAS fan, then you will fall for “Your Dog”, and if you’re more into CRUCIFIED BARBARA, then “Green For Us” or “My Man” willl probably appeal to you.
CELLULITE STAR seem to have learned from 30 years of girl rock’n’roll history, paying tribute to BLONDIE with their heavy rock version of “Call Me”, and they managed to write some catchy songs on here (“Baby Don’t Go”, “Hey You”…)
You’ll also find another surprising cover at the end of the album: “Have You Been Around” (HARDCORE SUPERSTAR), and the girls actually treat it very well.
The band is going to start recording their new album soon, so you will sure hear from them again!/Laurent C.
