One of my favourite records in recent years went by the name Show Your Bones and it was committed to tape by a band called Yeah Yeah Yeahs. You might have heard of them. Well, have you heard of Native Korean Rock & The Fishnets? Mmm, punk, have you or not? This mouthful is the name of lead singer Karen O’s new side project, a group made up of so far unnamed New York musicians, who will play their debut gigs in New York this month. Here’s a rather revealing poster advertising the gigs.
You can hear some demos right here, and very nice they are too. Meanwhile, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are working on their third album due for release whenever its bloody finished.
