ABOUT THE RELEASE


The Staches is a 10-year relationship. They are not a couple, nor two couples, neither a “quadrouple’’, but do love each other, and do fight sometimes. Becoming masters and mistresses in the art of managing the goat and the cabbage, they create together songs, or tricky strategies challenging any tags or boxes. Driven by the fear of the Undefined, some have tried to describe their music and confused themselves with designations like punk, post-punk, lo-fi pop, prog rock, garage and lost themselves even more with comparisons with any rock band including at least one woman. Fool that they are. Who the fuck cares. These young dinguses are fun to listen to and fun to watch. Punkt.

The Staches are from Geneva, Switzerland, and for obvious reasons, they are now based in Leipzig, Germany. Their upcoming LP « This Lake is Pointless » will be released on March 1st 2019 on Les Disques Bongo Joe (CH), self-recorded at home in their beloved « Proberaum », late at night, when even the toughest metalheads next door are asleep.
