PICTURE SLEEVE OF THE WEEK: Curlee Wurlee are a garage punk band
based in Hamburg, Germany, and active since the late 90s. French vocalist and
keyboardist Cécile Musy has fronted the band since the beginning, and has been
backed by various German musicians. Their “Le Phènome Vert” (“The Green
Phenomenon”) appeared in 2002 on the Wiped Out record label, and featured
the artwork of Martin Jablonks. Click on image to enlarge.
LAST WEEK’S DUSTY DIAMOND (a forgotten gem from the STD vaults): The
Hi-Fives were a poppy punky garage beat band from the San Francisco Bay
area, and were active between the years 1994-2000. In that time they released
three albums and a few singles. “Contemplating Coups” is a fun, peppy mover
with crisp guitar work and a brisk tempo. It appeared in 1998 on their second
album, “Get Down,” on Lookout! Records. Listen to it here:
