Not too hot a mama,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brule Lentement (Audio CD)
After seeing these guys live in 2010 I have to say I'm disappointed with this cd. I guess this kind of music lends itself to dancing around trying to keep your pint from spilling and maybe a third of it could be considered as stirring such memories but there is much too much of it at a slower pace. The other reviewer is correct in the sense of humour they bring to the stage together with an infectious enthusiasm, unfortunately not enough of that is evident here-le pistolet and bon tempe roulet are the high spots, and dead love rag is also effective. I'll be keeping it as a reminder of the gig, but there are tracks that just don't hold interest,and even a couple I can't listen to. It opens with a pretty dull riff over which there is a lot of French muttering-maybe hysterical if you know the language but it would have to be to justify it as the opener-the sound is pretty harsh on several tracks too which doesn't add to the mix as it were. All in all not enough energy or imagination. A pity.
