(Pronounced Channels Trois et Quatre) Threesome of synthesizer/vocals/drums, out of Vancouver BC. Nine track EP produced by Johnny Jewel. Sarah does vox, Jesse Willey on keyboards/back-up vox and the drummer is Nick ?. Noisey Synth-punk rock and roll, spilled beer and broken equipment, a drunken dance fit. They site the Fall, Black Flag and The Circle Jerks as some of their influences, they don’t sound like any of them. 3 versions of song ‘The Queen’, 2 versions of ‘Plastic’ and 2 versions of ‘Boys’ makes this release a bit monotonous, the nine tracks feel more like 5. They recently toured in London. They were also on the Zum Audio Volume 3 comp. that we added in June.

A quote from the band “We deny rumours of drug abuse, super punk and fucked up. No decision is clear. Expect broken equipment and broken smiles. Sarah is the new patti smith. Here comes the rain apologies to no one. Countless tours of pleasure. No groupies ever. Too ugly. William S. Burroughs and a joint. Shared with friends. Pills never seemed so glamorous. We are the new Freelance Society. Christian sex and wrists cut like its your birthday. Fly the ocean for a thousand days. I love you. Krosses.”
