OTH Sur Des Charbons Ardents LP

OTH combines a punky power chord song structure with cool rock’n’roll breaks to create a familiar and engaging instrumental sound. The individual tunes don’t leave much of an impression, and this is proven by the fact that the best song on this LP is a wonderful cover of “California Sun” called “Le Soleil du Midi.” Basically okay.

OTH Couer et Cuir cassette

Hardcore that’s based on R’n’B, extrapolated through ’60s punk, early ’70s rockin’ blues filtered through HEARTBREAKERS into the ’80s. In other words, imagine a totally punked out version of CHOCOLATE WATCHBAND’s “Let’s Talk About Girls” in French and you’ve got the idea.
