Three gaunt dudes hidden behind long locks play pissed-off, high-energy crust punk, from which emerges the high-pitched snotty riot grrrl voice of Aurélie Poppins. Liège’s Cocaine Piss have set their sights high: the band recorded their latest album with Steve Albini, known for his work with the Pixies, Nirvana, PJ Harvey and Iggy & The Stooges among others. The band refers to the way they pound away at their shell-shocked audiences with massive bursts of energy as a “glittershitstorm”. Punk’s not dead.
Homepage/Music of Cocaine Piss
Honking noise at the piercing volume of a foghorn, cheeping, squeaking and roaring – just some of the sounds that Mette Rasmussen is capable of coaxing from her instrument. The Danish saxophonist lives in Norway and works with the natural rawness of the alto saxophone, she exhausts its sonic possibilities, explores and experiments. Mette Rasmussen’s controlled eruptions are rich in ideas and the product of her adept combination of a broad range of techniques with the expressive energy of free jazz.
