Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

1 Oktober 2020

From Calgary, Canada here comes high octane garage-punk-rock duo MIESHA & THE SPANKS. You WANNA FEEL GOOD? Don’t look further. This highly inflammable tandem is what you need to jump out of your bed, do some circus saltos, hit the street like a monkey on coke and feel ecstatic all day long.

I know, I’m totally excited but that’s what happens when Miesha & The Spanks blasts out of your trembling speakers. Miesha Louie roars and rattles non-stop. High-strung and jumping for joy while scorching guitars built a-wall-of-hellish racket and partner in buzz and fuzz crime Sean Hamilton hits his drums like a madman who just escaped from a psychiatric clinic. As I told you before you’ll feel good all day long.

Combine D.A.F.‘s industrial vibrations, Sisters Of Mercy‘s catchy gloom and doom hallucinations and Depeche Mode‘s pop-noir melodies, and what you get is a trip to
a tenebrous underground basement where Ultra Sunn‘s Sam Huge and Gaelle Souflet
are the DJ’s. Dance like it’s 1999 all over again.

– A Hymn – IDLES (Bristol, UK)
A slow-moving ominous groove that feels like it will explode any second, but doesn’t. Like a fierce volcano about to spew lava but… doesn’t! The tension is almost unbearable. Another topnotch stroke! Idles keep on delivering soul-stirring thrills.

– You Are Just Not Alone – by BLACK MOON BOOK (Chicago, US)
A tender and romantic ballad with a Nils Lofgren-like, starry-eyed voice as the most important instrument in the middle. You can file this comforting reverie next to
Kurt Vile and The National. Relax, sit down, and enjoy…

Isolation Tumult – MIESHA & THE SPANKS Rumble And Roll On Brand New Sweaty Single ‘UNSTOPPABLE’

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

13 July 2020

MIESHA & THE SPANKS is a garage rock turbo from Calgary AB, featuring frontwoman Miesha Louie and her partner in crime, the hardest hitting Sean Hamilton on drums. Together they draw inspiration from classics like The Runaways, L7, and The Buzzcocks to create some modern noise that’s catchy enough to raise a fist and sing along.

The duo were working on their March 2021 Singles EP. But the coronavirus crisis affected the course of production, therefore Miesha and Sean focused on the recording of the EP’s first single UNSTOPPABLE.

A rollicking crackerjack rumbling and rolling from the get-go. A sickly sticky stunner to jump along, scream along and sweat along. Crackling guitars, hammering drum kicks
and spicy vocals is what you get, hopping like a kangaroo on drugs is what you should
do. Isolation firework to pump up your mood and body temperature. C’mon!

Nobody can stop them now…

MIESHA & THE SPANKS Rock Firmly On New Peppery Single ‘THE GIRLS ARE O.K.’

New sonic impulses

4 October 2019

(Photo: Unfolding Creative Photography)

Canadian duo MIESHA & THE SPANKS returns with their first new music since 2018. Miesha wrote new peppery single ‘THE GIRLS ARE O.K.’ while expecting twins, no idea what their gender would be and while working at Girl’s Rock Camp Calgary which was a great inspiration overall. Eventually, the sickly sticky song is about the progress that’s
been made with gender division among younger generations while recognizing there’s
still work to be done.

The Girls Are O.K.‘ rocks and rolls firmly and will make you scream along when the gutsy chorus, with Calgary’s Girls Rock Camp doing some pretty cool and euphoric backing vocals, kicks in. It elevates this punchy tune to a pithy ‘girls want to have fun‘ anthem with the same titanic energy as Joan Jett‘s ‘I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll‘. A top-notch belter! Definitely!

C’mon, all you girls out there, tune in and yell yourself dizzy…


Hot-Blooded Canadian Punk Pair MIESHA & THE SPANKS Rock And Roll Back In Time With ‘MOTORIN’ Clip…

Clips that will have an impact on your eyes and your ears…

8 May 2019

If you wanna have an idea of the childhood dreams of Canadian 2-cylinder punk duo MIESHA & THE SPANKS you’ll just have to watch the band’s fresh and most amusing
video clip for MOTORIN’ one of the rowdiest bangers on their latest album GIrls Girls Girls.

I suppose when guitarist/thunderous vox Miesha Louie and drummer Sean Hamilton were teenagers they found out quickly how dull a normal job actually was/is and they decided instead to go out, to discover unknown places, to have hot-dog & French fries fights, to check out new fun games along the way and experiment with fresh milkshake flavors, but most of all they hit the streets to jump on stage at night and set the place
on fire with explosive rock racket in front of an adoring crowd going ballistic. Here’s a universal dream of millions, then, now and tomorrow…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

26 January 2018

Band: MIESHA & THE SPANKS (cool name)
Base: Calgary, AB, Canada
Who: Miesha Louie (vox/guitar) and Sean Hamilton (drums) are “purveyors of the most rough ‘n tumble, energy driven garage-rock possible. Sassy vocals, dirty riffs, pounding drums- this two-piece is overpowering and infectious. Charming hearts and kicking ass four years and counting.”
Score: on the first single from their upcoming debut album ‘Girls Girls Girls‘ this sizzling two-piece bolide sounds like if Courtney Love‘s hot band Hole is back with a glam grunge stomper. A cracking crasher pushed by dynamite drum hits, spiced with sultry vocals and going totally gaga on the scream-along chorus. Catching stuff to energize your adrenalin flow. You already guessed it: the only way to play this powerful hammerhead is LOUD! Here we go, 1-2-3-4…
