Female Trouble Band

Konzert / Mi. 25. Mai 2016 / 20:30 / Eintritt frei - Kollekte


The Females’ trouble is really pushed hard; Divine, in John Waters’ same named movie, does no better. Their remake of the purest 50s rock ‘n’ roll, is simple but full of blues despair. When they start playing, first comes the rocking, sculpted by Elisa’s telecaster, and then it all rolls out with fancy dresses, rockabilly hairstyles and lip-stick, down the roads of Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Nancy Sinatra, Little Walter, Bo Diddley, The Shirelles, Johnny Cash, etc...

Two female voices, first Nancy’s, warm and mellow like a true rocker’s. Then, on the frenetic downhill run Elisa’s energy bursts in, as she takes on her telecaster and fills the simple and constant underground blues tunnel of brillantine.

The guitar and voice duet is kept on tempo by snarist Marta with her what-the-hell-am-i-doing-here-face, suprising everyone and herself with the sound of her brushes and their incessant succession. Finally, in the background, Sarya’s minimal percussion and third voice holds everything together like star dust.
