Okay, this review actually covers the three 12inches by this French band, released in 2013 and 2014 on P.Trash and Crapoulet Records. For this CD LA FLINGUE put all the 18 songs from these releases on one compilation (co-release of the labels Sad Punk Discos, Todo Sana Records, Chica Psicotica Records, Revolver Records and Subterranea Records) for their south-american tour in spring 2014.
If you haven't been hiding in a cave for the last 10 years you definitely know that France not only has fine wine, tasty baguettes and the damn "Front National" but also a buncha excellent bands for snotty 77-Punkrock with a Garage-edge. LA FLINGUE is kinda an all-star band from that scene, cuz here you'll find some dudes in the line-up that played in the HATEPINKS, IRRITONES and AGGRAVATION before. So these monsieurs definitely know their business!
All in all all those tracks don't offer some very new exciting sounds. But I don't think you've been expecting that, huh?!? One of the main "trademarks" for LA FLINGUE might be, that they like to sing some songs in German, which sounds interesting and also makes me think of some old Hamburg bands like BIG BALLS & THE GREAT WHITE IDIOT or the "Paranoia in der Straßenbahn" sampler. And you also find a coverversion of 999's "Homicide" here. Cool! So: No big surprises here, but very well performed - with lotsa snot, anger and nihilism. If you're a bunker kid and dig this sound you sure can do nothing wrong with one of the 12inches or this comp-CD.
