Dr Jekyll & Mister Hyde

"It's almost embarrassing how well-behaved I was, which is probably why I do things like spit water on myself on stage as an adult."

Karen O. is the front woman of "garage punk" band the Yeah Yeah Yeahs alongside drummer Brian Chase and guitarist Nick Zinner. She's joyfully outrageous on stage.

She's also got that sweet, romantic side that you can discover with:
- Native Korean Rock

If you like Native Korean Rock, keep an eye on "Crush Songs" (Karen O first solo record that will be released in September 2014).
Cool little remix by Rory Phillips and Martin Dubka that throw some funky-disco grooves into a bouncy vocoder…

“I remember once when I was a kid and I was showing an interest in art and music, and my dad sat me down and said, ‘All art comes from the dark side,’ ” He said. “He said the dark side isn’t evil or bad but that’s where it resides, and if you choose a creative life, then you’re choosing to reside in the darkness.” He paused.
“I don’t know where he’s getting that from. Maybe he was high or something. But that really has stayed with me.” Interview of Sufjan Stevens - New York Times, Oct. 2010

Naked bottoms

With a provocative wit and a DIY attitude, Fat White Family resurrects some punk/post-punk era in our ears and brings a dash of fresh air and honesty into London's alternative music scene. They recently played at Field Day music festival and at the Shacklewell Arms pub in Dalston. It's certainly not a band to be missed.
