The HotRats @ l' Album de la semaine Canal+ Paris Feb 8th 2010

The HotRats @ L' Album de la Semaine, Canal+
Paris Feb 8th


The HotRats featuring Gaz Coombes & Danny Goffey from Supergrass have just released an album " Turn ons" consisting of only covers.
They were promoting it tonight @ famous Canal+ tv show L' Album de la semaine.
Dressed as 'sailors' with black & white stripes t-shirts, Gaz on guitar & vocals and Danny on drums & vocals are having fun
Oh yeah first it's another another duet, lots of people are doing it now guitars & drums, nothing new but it gives an extra flavor.
In this case too bad they don't have a third musician as they're using tapes for the bass ( or the Piano).
Hey guys if you're doing a duet you have to keep it RAW, what's the point of additionnal sounds on tape ?!?
Anyway it's straight rock'n roll with covers from The Doors, Roxy Music, The Beat, Elvis Costello, early Pink Floyd, David Bowie , Beastie Boys ( hard to recognize this one : " fight for your right" ) & a couple of others I could not put a name on it.
9 songs set in front of less than 200 people.
Cool !!!
They're playing tomorrow @ Point Ephémere.
