Liechtenstein : Apathy 7" (Fraction discs)
The initial parallel between Liechtenstein and C86 girl-fronted bands like The Primitives or The Shop Assistants, on the basis of their first single "Stalking Stills", has been swept away in my mind when I first heard their stunning Misfits cover of "Universal Appeal" last year.
Apparently, if you get the chance to pick them up live, they even make a cover of the wonderful Clothilde's "Saperlipopette", a top notch yéyé tune...
And this brand new second 7"single is another step towards pop perfection... A-side "Apathy" will bring you to a high emotional level, lazy, minimal and innocent like the Marine Girls. Short B-side "Security by Design" is as haunting as if Arthur Lee was putting a spell on The Feminine Complex... WOW !
