Album Review

What is interesting in this, the second album of MIGNON, is not just the up-beat rhythm of songs, but it’s also a rhythm that at times will bring to your mind the best times of Rockabilly, Garage and Psychobilly blended excellently with Punk, Goth and Metal. Above all that what matters the most is the attitude of Mignon and her band. Musically speaking it was like I was hearing a 21st century version of THE CRAMPS, but Mignon’s attitude brought to my mind not only PEACHES with which they share certain elective affinities but of Wendy O’Williams from the PLASMATICS. I think that she is very capable of singing a cover of ‘Sex Junkie’ and that by definition gives her guts bigger than those of most of her male peers. In times of Puritanism, MIGNON deliver a trip of guilt-free sexuality, of libertine attitude and a middle finger on many aspects of modern life.

So, if you think that you are going to marry your High school sweetheart, that you’re gonna have a house in the suburbs, three kids, a dog, a SUV, that you’re gonna be subscribed to your local golf club and you’ll have a fine pension scheme and endless Tea Parties where you are going to share your boring life and opinions, don’t bother checking out this band. They’ll only remind you what a jerk you are. Some of the most outstanding songs in this album are ‘Hot Love’, ‘Assassin’ and the ‘Santa Muerte’, with the last one having this Mexican feeling of an endless summer and tens of tequilas in it. And truth be told the whole album is damn brilliant and amazing!
