THE MONSIEURS

When THE MONSIEURS put some new songs online on Friday my reaction was akin to that of a bored housewife winning one of those enormous checks from Publisher’s Clearing House. After I stopped shrieking and dancing around my kitchen, I listened to “We’re Gonna Rock the Night” and “Kari Ann” an embarrassing amount of times and fell in love with this band all over again. THE MONSIEURS are a special breed and their style of garage rock n roll is rarely heard around these parts. Their fuzzy reverby psychosis is dragged to the lowest depths of insanity with Andy Macbain’s snotty howling, Erin King’s stand-up drum pounding combined with Hilken Mancini’s girl-group-gone-wrong vocals and grimy guitar riffs are total perfection. Listening to their epic “Kari Ann” is like being trapped in quicksand, I want to be completely smothered in their sound. “We’re Gonna Rock the Night” is fucking anthem if I ever heard one, I would be honored to blow out my eardrums to this song. Hey MONSIEURS, do you have any upcoming shows? Would you consider just playing every night in my living room? Is anyone else out there as stupidly obsessed with this band as I am?
