THE MACHETES (CANADA)
The integrity and glamour of Machetes comes out in both the music and their show - it's the love child conceived by a massive orgy of music that includes Siouxsie Sioux, Love and Rockets, Iggy Pop and Black Sabbath - and that's just for starters. Influences range from art-rock to brit-pop, punk/post-punk to glam. Playing weekly in their native Canada to overcrowded underground clubs and attracting a diverse crowd of dedicated followers, their shows are a delicate blend of mayhem, beauty and aggression driven by powerfully delivered songs. A raucous post-punk work-out infusing elements of glam and early 90's riot-grrrl, inspired by the likes of Bowie, Iggy, Love and Rockets, Sonic Youth, Shangri-Las, the Runaways, Interpol, Elastica and Richard Hell.
