Copenhagen’s favourite rock’ n roll hellcats provided the soundtrack to some of the best pop moments in the first years of my life in this city. From a hot summer night in Stengade five years back – wild, trashy, raw (they threw in a cover of the Cramps ‘Like a bad girl should’ and I was bowled over), an epic New Year’s Eve bash in Nørrebrogade – drunk (them and us), throwing rock shapes and having insanely good fun, to more accomplished shows, more reflective songs of love’s uncertainty and heartache, but still showing their claws when they needed to.
Then they disappeared, turning up briefly in Paris to wow fashionistas at Yves Saint Laurent before vanishing from the radar completely. Had they gone to the chapel or to prison? But a couple of shows last year revealed the truth. Ditte, Asta and Mei had got their groove, hung up a glitter-ball and converted their garage into a discotheque. And now they’re playing at Endless Summer. It’s great to have them back. (words: RmT)
