Les Marinellis

(Montreal, Canada // Burger Records)


Easily one of the hardest working bands this side of paradise, Montreal’s quintet Les Marinellis are still the most affordable bordello on the market. In less than three years these Burger Records signees have managed to release three albums, tour Europe an equal number of times and cement their place in the rock n roll landscape without compromising their raw, sometimes poetic and often near the knuckle live shows. Here are five garage rockers who have cultivated a stage persona in direct line with the weird and wonderful world of all the great rock n roll ancestors and a lyrical fascination for the bizarre and the heart-breaking.
