Le Butcherettes Review

Guest Author - Danielle Crowe

Originally started as an all-girl punk band, Le Butcherettes are a Mexican garage punk trio that breaks the rules and stereotypes at every show. If youíre looking for a hardcore rock band that isnít afraid to get wild and raise some eyebrows, then look no further because Le Butcherettes is exactly that band.

Formed in 2007 and beginning their stardom in the Mexican underground scene, Le Butcherettes have gone through quite a few band members since that time. The current members are vocalist/guitarist Teri Gender Bender (born Teresa Suarez) Ė who was the one who originally created the band in the first place, drummer Lia Braswell and bassist Omar Rodriguez Lopez, who also handles the bandís production.

Le Butcherettes released their debut EP in 2008, titled Kiss & Kill. In 2009, they won the awards for ďBest New ArtistĒ and ďBest Punk RecordĒ at the Indie-O Awards. They also performed at the 2009 Hellow Fest in Monterrey, opened for The Dead Weather at their 2009 Mexico City and Guadalajara shows, and opened for The Yeah Yeah Yeahs in 2010 for their Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey shows. They then released their debut full-length album on May 10, 2011, titled Sin Sin Sin. Their latest upcoming album is set to release in 2012, so remember to stay on the lookout for the title Cry Is for the Flies.

While performing on stage, Le Butcherettes front woman Teri Gender Bender will wear blood-covered aprons, as well as fill the stage with artificial blood and real, severed pig heads. Being a vegetarian and an animal activist, I was originally appalled by this act and although I enjoy the music I didnít agree with their singerís actions. However, after reading more into their history I have learned that this is less of an act of gore and gruesome behaviour and more of a right of speech for female activism. Would I personally choose this route to bring empowerment to feminism? No. But I commend Teri for speaking out on these issues regardless and having the fearless attitude and strength to say/do anything at all.

Hitting punk notes perfectly, song likes Dress Off, Tonight, and Bang! are great choices for rocking out with a rebellious attitude, while New York, Henry Donít Got Love, and All You See In Me Is Death lean more towards a relaxed, yet still hardcore vibe. If you like punk rock, I highly recommend checking out Le Butcherettes. You wonít be disappointed by this bandís unique, hardcore sound.
