LOOKING FOR A LABEL !
A french band playing the Blues? Why not. Hazy mornings, open roads, broken bottles and cheap guitars look the same in every place on Earth, after all. So, by late 2000, five bored youth decided to offer their own vision of pop music, englobing everything they like from the Beatles to the Bad Brains. The result is something that swings, grooves, beats, hollers like nobody else. One album, two ep's later, The Elektrocution has made a name in the french underground with its unique blend of pissed-off blues and manic pop anthems, and have been kindly compared to acts like The Hellacopters, Hot Snakes, The Hives, RFTC, 80's french rock heroes The Dogs or even the early Stooges or MC5. But who cares about a name list? Who cares if some drunk ass tells them they sound like The Cult, Discharge or Led Zeppelin? Who cares if the garage-esque elite shoe-shines them or spits in their faces? Who cares about them being french, swedish or japanese? They could be from the other hemisphere, they could be your neighbours. They speak the only language carrying the universal truth : killer music. Excuse their french.
