Pierre and Bastien: Cancer 7"
New 7" from this Parisian band. This is catchy, poppy stuff that reminds me a lot of the stuff coming out of Copenhagen a few years ago... it bears more than a passing resemblance to Gorilla Angreb (no lady vox though) as well as that great Peter Bonneman solo single that not a lot of people heard. In other words, this is fast and punk, but also super catchy and with something about it that feels vaguely progressive and post-punk. In a way it sounds like an early Rough Trade single, but without any sort of pretensions to recreating that style at all... it's just two great catchy, punk songs with awesome DIY production.
