comanechi

As titles go, ‘You Owe Me Nothing But Love’ takes on a whole new meaning when accompanied by Comanechi’s second album artwork (that’s a severed cock beneath that glory hole, at the back, beside a poodle that’s done a shit next to a topless Bobbitt skank). Not so tween pop now, is it? Since 2009 debut album ‘Crime of Love’, Comanechi have added a member to the mix (drummer Charlie Heaton) but not much else – still ploughing a furrow of heavy, twisted grunge riffs and J-Pop shrieks from Akiko Matsuura, who continues to sound like a manic, spurned lover who might actually get snip-happy with the scissors if betrayed in the sack. Songs like ‘Die For’ are as catchy as they are brutal, while 8-minute centrepiece ‘Patsy’ (she’s a whore, apparently) is a drone metal hate letter pointing to all that blood on the cover sleeve.
