www.myspace.com/thenoisettes www.thenoisettes.com BRING THE NOISE!! **Hey! The debut album from this British band was released April 07 “Front-lady Shingai Shoniwa sports an ornate feathered mask on the left side of her hair like the centerpiece of a main street parade: you simply cannot keep your eyes off her. She delivers time-bomb stage antics; she roars, she growls and she refuses to let you ignore her…”- Filter Magazine- September 23, 2005 “One of rock n' roll's best kept secrets.” – NME “The Noisettes punk sound is like tuning into a boxing match between The Stooges and Sly and The Family Stone” – bbc.co.uk Having just hopped off stateside tour with Bloc Party and The Kills and a UK tour with Babyshambles, TV On The Radio ‘Three Moods of the…’ is the first release from the Noisettes, a three piece from southeast London. We present you with Noisettes’ four song EP as an intro to the mind-bursting passion and ability of their powerfully varied repertoire. ‘Three Moods of the…’ presents “Don’t Give Up,” a heavy, fast, assertive pop record, taking hold like an anthemic choke chain around the ears, “Monte Christo” a beautiful, dark, folk narrative over hypnotic chord progressions, “Signs” a three and a half minute warning of what might be, and “Burned” a grimy blues number that needs WD40, but it’s the rust that holds it together. Noisettes are fronted by the supremely talented and striking Shingai Shoniwa, a female vocalist and instrumentalist who sings like Billie Holiday with traces of Erykah Budu and Bjork while patrolling the stage like an Amazonian Warrior with an eye for fashion. Shingai howls and soothes, gives you goose bumps and shoots soul into your main arteries. Filter Magazine dubbed her as having a “bottomlessly bubbly burlesque persona and a voice larger-than-life.” Don’t fret, she is in good company. Dan Smith, the second line of defense, wields his six stringed axe around the stage like being a guitar god is going out of fashion. Driving rhythm becomes a soaring riff as this virtuoso sets the stage and the hi-fi alight. Bringing up the rear is Jamie Morrison, a drummer so heavy with his sticks and skin that you won’t notice he is more hair than man. Noisettes stand as genuine originals in a sea of manufactured pop and all time greats alike.
