Remember that time in the late '70s when punks traded in their guitars for synths, and re-configured disco as a bastard brother of garage rock? Now, to recreate the raw excitement and sonic abandon of post-punk's wildest hour are Thomas Priem and Sylvain Przybylski, the duo known as Curry & Coco.
C&C began playing together in 2006 in their hometown Lille in Northern France. After three years, 150 concerts and 30,000 kilometres preaching the good word across Europe, CURRY & COCO landed in London to record their debut album with British producer David Kosten (Bat For Lashes, Chew Lips, Everything Everything) "WE ARE BEAUTY", which will be released in the UK later this year.
As a first taster off the album, Curry & Coco will be releasing "SEX IS FASHION EP" as a digital download an 10" vinyl on 10th May 2010, featuring tracks "WHO'S NEXT?" and "SEX IS FASHION" with remixes by British artist The Emperor Machine and French beatmaker/producer Fulgeance.
