Argh! Pop Tekkers In Helsinki

Newly signed to UK's Heavenly label (home to Saint Etienne, The Soft Pack and Edwyn Collins) is Helsinki duo Le Corps Mince De Francois. These Finnish sisters create a baggy pop funk that the label quite rightly compare to Shaun Ryder but their current single 'Gandhi' also recalls the '80s beat-driven pop of King Trigger, Kissing The Pink and Altered Images. There are also obvious nods to the late '90s electropunk scene from which they have arisen. There's an album promised next year and, for now, there are dub'd up reloves by Andrew Weatherall available for you to purchase from your nearest online record store.
