Get ready for Another Rock ‘n’ Roll Night!

  • Line up:
  • Midnight Hotel
  • High energy Rock ‘n’ Roll
  • The Courettes (DK)
  • The Courettes are a blazing hot combination of raw garage punk, 60s girl group melodicism and cool kitsch imagery. A two-piece band – vocalist/guitarist Flavia Couri (from Brazil) and drummer/ backing vocals Martin Couri (from Denmark – where they are based). They’re married – hence the same surname – not a Ramones-alike common identity statement! The lazy comparison is a White Stripes in reverse. Admittedly it’s easy to see why that comparison would be made, but it does a disservice to what it is that makes The Courettes so great. For a start Martin is no Meg White – laying down a much more solid foundation than Ms White could ever deliver. In Flavia, they have a front woman who is clearly, completely at ease in the multi-tasking role of singer and lone guitarist – having to cover all rhythm and lead bases with a minimum of gadgetry. No loop pedals here. For me a more valid comparison would be The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion crossed with the Cramps and Ronnie Spector! Their songs are instantly memorable – ‘The Boy I Love’ is like a lost Ronettes demo if they’d been filtered through a raw garage punk blender and let the Ramones supply the backing.
