The Coathangers - "Never Wanted You" 7"

The Coathangers – “Never Wanted You” 7”
Die Slaughterhaus, 2007
Acquired: Love Garden, Used, 2011
Price: $2

This Coathangers 7” actually precedes “Shake Shake” by a year, but is just as grimy, just as ramshackle, and just as much fun. They’re the kind of band that would really shine in a live performance though, as their whole concept is one of those things that doesn’t 100% transfer to records. They’re good and fun for what they are, but the Coathangers are a party band meant for the musty basements of the world. You can SENSE the attitude on the recordings, but you know there’s something missing. Regardless, there is always room for lady punk bands and the more the merrier and the goofy joy the Coathangers bring to their jams is something that the punk rock world needs more of.
