14,99 €*
Release:2010 / US – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
AVAILABLE AGAIN AT A NEW LOWER PRICE!!! "Banque Allemande has a relentlessness that reminds me of the Gordons and Rema Rema, the thuggish charm of Feedtime, and some 1-2-3-4 yucks of 'i dunno, name some late 70s euro punk outfit'-but that's me hearing them. Their background is in the bands DISCOUNTER, TRUMPF AS, and MOSER INDIAN. Their ears are attuned to the hammering beats of Boys Noize. Or as they describe their sound: minimalistic, cut-down songstructures-yes please. rough sounds, straight beats-yes please. if what comes out is called 'punk'-whatthefuck." Edition of 500 copies.

A couple years ago, this fine label released the debut album by a mysterious Berlin band called BANQUE ALLEMANDE. Trapped in a city more known for dance music than two chord rock & roll, Banque Allemande's live shows were restricted to a few underground spaces and Berlin's subway system. They recorded for themselves but outside of a small circle of friends they were unknowns. Somehow or another, S.S. stumbled on them and got them to smash their recordings into one album which they called Eins, Zwei. A primitive assault of strum & klang, the critical response went something like this: 'Das Missing Link zwischen Trio, Huesker Due Land Speed Record und Rainer Werner Fassbinder' (Andre Pluskwa/Vice); '...a monster slab of relentless guitar fury from out of nowhere' (Ryan Wells/Z Gun); 'Ihr seid zur Zeit die beste deutsche Band die ich kenne' (Max Mueller/Mutter); 'Primitive and noisy, yet with an undeniable intelligence driving the car into the wall' (Rich Kroneiss/Terminal Boredom). Well, now comes album number two, Willst du Chinese sein musst du die ekligen Sachen essen. Like their first, Willst du Chinese, mixes marathon riffage with shorter blast, centering on a two chord fung set to a galloping beat, a sound that brings to mind the Gordons, early Leather Nun, and even Big Black. However, it sounds like our German pals have been listening to a little Velvet Underground, too. Like Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Banque Allemande take VU's pop rock side and punk it up a bit. Oh, the Banques also spare a moment or two getting heavy. This one is a little more diverse than their first album but fans will be pleased...and those new to the band will be searching for the debut. Four hundred of these birds exist, so act fast. Another brilliant cover art job, again by JURGEN GREWE.
