Goner Message Board / New Releases & Stuff For Sale / The Coathangers CD/LP *out now* Rob's House/Die Slaughterhaus
Posted: Sep 6, 2007 3:56 pm
here's a review from CMJ:

Though it's true that boozing it up with the Black Lips in the Hotlanta scene might befoul any young lass, these femmes, from the sounds of their desperately wired vocals and garbage-can guitars, were fried from the start. Silly like any 17-year-old ought to be, the Coathangers do harbor for reals feminist angst. They cunningly dis the housewife dead-end in "Buckhead Betty," singing, "I wanna be poppin' pills all day/I wanna throw the kids away," in a charmingly snotty way amongst soft handclaps and limp strumming. Then comes many a churlishly cheeky boy-toy-directed demand to take a hike ("Why you playin' me boy?/You're so Parcheesi"), though they ain't much for the ladies either ("I'll punch you in the twat!"). The music, kicking along with no-fi frazzle, slips in handclaps, "woo-woos," cheap synths, clunky rhythms and toddler-tantrum riffs in the volatile vein of post-Slits grrrl rock that originates from no particular starting point, save the band equipment they stole from their a-hole ex's basement. Some mournful musings begin to seep out as towards then end, featuring accordion and Russian lyrics no less, so there may be more up their sleeves than this trash-yelping suggests. Though I wouldn't suggest you go up to them and try to peek up those sleeves.

LP's are going fast, not sure how Slaughterhaus is doing with their copies but i've sold 3/5s of the Rob's House supply and its only been out two days.
