They are bitch of the Bitches

Le Corps Mince De Fran├žoise - The Skinny Body of Francoise(LCMDF) consist of sisters Emma and Mia Kemppainen. The band formed in 2007 and started playing out on their local scene in Helsinki, Finland. Their energetic and highly stylized live performances quickly became a sensation and they're now set to unleash their talents to the rest of Europe.

Their music genre is unclassified. Contain experimental pop, tropical rave, corky rapping, alternative noise and so on and on. Bitch of the Bitches is one of my favorite from their song list. It is really quirky and fun, plus they have a really cool low budget music video.

Forthcoming single ‘Rayban Glasses’ hits you with its school-chanting skip-along lyrics, and M.I.A Gangalang horn section, like a horde of well-meaning hoodies (hell bent on painting your comfortable two bed semi a shocking shade of fluro green).

The Noisettes

La la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
And while the city sleeps,
I won't weep
Because I couldn't keep By boyfriend
And the summers end is here again
And the leaves are golden
Under the grand silver birch tree
Were-a thinking 'bout the people we meet
Dancing feet
Wasters on the cover of a magazine
People we kissed
People we lost and the ones that we might not ever remember
Whats the use
Cause I'm,
Not what I was last summer
Not who I was in the spring
Tell me tell me tell me
When will we learn
We love it and we leave it and we watch it burn
Damn these wild young hearts
Damn this wild young heart
Now that the city's awake, my heart aches
Oh what a silly mistake it seems I've made
You left your keys under my bed
Left a thumpin in my head
I would say sorry, what's the use

Cause, I'm not what I was last September
And I don't wear the same robes in May
We know we shouldn't do it, but we do it anyway
We know we might regret it but it seemed ok
Damn this wild young heart
Damn this wild young heart
Damn this wild young heart

If now is forever then what's to prove
Cause it won't be the same next summer
And I guess I'll see you in the spring
Somebody tell me, tell me, tell me, when will I learn
I love it and I leave it and I watch it burn
Damn this wild young heart
I told you damn this wild young heart
Damn this wild young
Tell me, tell me, tell me when will I learn
Damn this wild young heart

Noisettes certainly took an unconventional approach to starting songwriting. Fresh from tour in summer 2007, guitarist Dan Smith (a man known to pair silver trousers with a yellow, sequinned shirt) and bearded drummer Jamie Morrison (who still seems surprised to be in a band at all) began sonic experiments that involved getting stoned before trips to the Natural History Museum, then attempting to cover the likes of Britney’s Hit Me Baby (One More Time).

“Some bands stick with the same style forever,” says singer Shingai Shoniwa, whose versatile vocals have seen her compared to everyone from Deborah Harry and Kate Bush to Billie Holiday and Diana Ross. “They get together because they share identical musical tastes, then never do anything different. We’re a gang, but we’re also three divas with different record collections who constantly introduce each other to new sounds, whether it’s African music, jazz, Van Morrison or Black Sabbath. For us, making music means keeping our ears open.”
