Myspace focus: Comanechi


The Big Pinks recent televised appearance on Jools Holland would have you believe that drummer Akiko, has the vocal range of a man bothering the wrong side of 30, or alternatively the voice of Robbie Furze. However one session with her ”other band” Comanechi and it becomes clear she isn’t in the same camp as, is-she-isn’t-he Shemale Lady Gaga. Comanechi encapsulate the guttural grunge of 90’s alt bands such as Sonic Youth, whilst harbouring the minimalist, girl boy line up of The White Stripes. Think Blood Red Shoes, if they were less camp popstrels pre occupied with applying mascara, and more interested in forming blisters and drawing blood. Awesome.
