MUCK AND THE MIRES
LES SANS CULOTTES
"Taking their cue from that mythological Nuggets moment in 1966 when bands like The Remains, The Barbarians, and The Sonics spied the charts, Muck And The Mires turn simplicity into a virtue. Each song on their third long-player rants, raves, and gets out of town in about two minutes, leaving a swirl of hooks and guitar wreckage in its wake." -Uncut
The "seven-headed beast from the hard-scrabble streets of Menilmontant" and "those frilly Parisian underthings," Les Sans Culottes borrowed their name from the ill-clad (i.e., long-trousered) citizen-soldiers of the French Revolution. The band's sound is a melange of Francophone '60s girl group and the Kinks... "We are the masters of the French rock'n'roll; all others are but the slave!"
