Reminder for this week: March 11-18

Big Week, and my pick is The Supersuckers:
  • Monday night at Fleche D'Or, The Cinders: The guitar work often reminds me of X, and at other times the seem like a hybrid of the Ramones and the Stones. The vocals are very poppy and polished. Check it out here.
  • Supersuckers on Tuesday at Nouveau Casino.
  • High Llamas at La Maroquinerie on Wed. night.
  • Kristen Hersh (formerly of Throwing Muses)Saturday at Nouveau Casino.
Supersuckers blurb in English and French below (from my contribution)
Have fun! JH

Formed in 1988 in Tucson, Arizona, Supersuckers quickly developed a strong niche following after the release of their first album on Sub Pop. The band has a penchant for hyperbole, calling themselves, for example, ‘the best rock-n’roll band ever’. They mix punk, à la The Didjits, with twang. If you like to rock and miss this, then you super suck. JH

Créé à Tucson, Arizona, le groupe Supersuckers a vite trouvé ses fans après la sortie de leur dernier album sur Sub Pop. Le groupe a un goût prononcé pour l’hyperbole – ils s’autoproclament ainsi ‘meilleur groupe de rock de tous les temps’. Ils mélangent le punk, à la The Didjits, avec caractère. Si vous aimez le rock mais que cet album ne vous plaît pas, c’est vous qui avez tout faux. JH
