Listen To Le Butcherettes’ Teresa Suarez New Song With Garbage's Shirley Manson


Teri can bend

I have been intrigued by Le Butcherettes’ Teresa Suarez aka Teri Gender Bender, since I saw her opening for Iggy Pop a few years,… who possibly opens for Iggy Pop? She was ferocious, totally crazy, a restless bomb on stage, and bloody, at least she was wearing an apron drenched in blood. One thing is sure, she may never open for Morrissey but she was fantastic.

Since that time, she left Mexico and moved to Los Angeles (where else?) teamed up with drummer Lia Braswell and just released ‘Cry Is For The Flies’, an album I have still to listen to. The album was actually put on hold in 2012 after producer Omar Rodriguez-Lopez lost his mother, but it finally came out 10 days ago. It has even special guests, Garbage’s Shirley Manson and Henry Rollins of Black Flag notoriety… not a surprise for Rollins, as he regularly plays some Butcherettes during his Saturday night radio show and he has compared her to… Iggy Pop. ‘She’s something. She’s a star. It’s like a great character in a movie. You want to know what happens when the movie is over. You want to know the rest of the story with her, ‘ he has declared about her according to the LA Times.

Rolling Stone has shared the track with Shirley Manson, ‘Shame, You’re All I’ve Got’ and this is quite a macabre and mysterious one. With military drums, creepy piano notes and haunting almost menacing vocals, the song moves slowly but in a very resolved and heavy manner, evoking the weird soundtrack of a gothic movie. There are three other tracks available on bandcamp – not the Henry Rollins’ spoken-word performance on ‘Moment of Guilt’ – but they all sound sinister, with a dark-punk-aggressiveness, a little bit as if Fiona Apple had turned all PJ Harvey or Karen O.
