Euro Trash Girl
Chicks On Speed

Describing Chicks On Speed is difficult. They’re kind of a mix between punk, pop, rock, electronica, and performance art. I guess you could sum it all up by just saying electroclash, but that really doesn’t do it justice. Wikipedia describes their genres with words like “art”, “fashion”, and “musique concrète”. The first two words being descriptors I don’t often see applied to musicians. And their albums like to drift from genre to genre with each song.

"Euro Trash Girl" in particular is kind of like hearing The Slits in the style of "Losing My Edge" by LCD Soundsystem. Honestly I’d like to tell you more but I don’t really know where to start. If you like the song, look them up, and you’ll understand the difficulty.
