"The don’t fucking cares ‘underage demon’"

missive 194
The don’t fucking cares ‘underage demon’ (roka). Name alone warrants their imposition to
an affectionate spot in our heart, the don’t fucking cares admit sounds great - bet you
wished you’d called your band that - much deserving of its own branded t-shirt boutique is it
not. Anyhow the Don’t Fucking Cares (wonder if they do t-shirts?) have been around in
some shape or form since 2006 (there’s already been a debut platter ‘download’ which to
much gnashing of the choppers we’ve missed out on) and hail from London, number four in
the ranks and are led from the front by Marta whose DNA it seems appears to be spliced
from Suzi Q, Joan Jett and a youthful Toyah (especially on ’nihilism is a fact of life’). Sound
wise they play a grizzled melodic mutation assembled from second generation punk dialects
and skewed ‘n’ scuzzy garage beat pop that’s been informed by both glam and the mid 70’s
CBGB’s scene. ‘underage demon’ is deliciously dirty and decadent, a scuzzy babe that cross
wires and twists around a sweetly seductive wasted and sleazy vibe whose prime
constituents are riddled with the infectious infusion of garage beat motifs and stripped
down punk pop accents that’s all at once littered and scarred by a flat lining boredom filled
no future dialect that buckles barbed and beautifully like a corrosive variant of the Priscillas.
Flip the disc ’nihilism is a fact of life’ a rally of sorts against societies infatuation with
celebrity - they’ve got our vote on that one - just utterly pains me to see these brainless oiks
invading my recreational viewing and reading habits while can I just say here and now -
Alistair Darling - has he or has he not got a face that you could happily punch for fun. Okay
the baiting done with - sharp intake of breath count to ten and all that lark - nah it hasn’t
worked ho hum. Anyway where were we - ah yes the Don’ t fucking cares (great name eh? -
what - oh sorry we’ve done that have we - still it is great) - ’Nihilism is a fact of life’ indeed
well tasty aggressive angst ridded pogo pop all metered out with stuttering riffs and a
seriously fucked off charm - kinda reminded us of a very youthful two finger waving Vice
Squad. Utterly recommended. We’ve just noticed a ‘rare’ demo EP entitled ‘cardboard
hearts’ that we suspect we need to own, hear and play to certain destruction before we get
too much older. Prepare to see more of this lot in these pages. - LOSINGTODAY Magazine

"The DFC's"

“Baby take control, I wanna download on YOU….”

Loud aggressive guitar sounds and abrasive vocal mix make this band stand out from the crowd. The EP kicks off a real, true working class rocker ‘Download’, the title track of this release, it grabs your attention by the throat, kicks your ass, knees you in the balls, and leaves you quivering on the ground wanting more!!!!
Does rock ‘n roll get any better?
Is this what rock ‘n roll is all about?
You bet it is!!!
Marta delivers a certain quality over the top of really gutsy punkrock driven songs, and catchy choruses…..this I almost 1977all over again for me!!
The songs aren’t blasted out at 100MPH either, there’s a steadiness to the whole sound which helps deliver the power….like listening to Iggy’s ‘Raw Power’, these songs are well executed and well timed. They leave you wanting more and more and more, whether you fucking care or not. They don’t!!!
‘There’s something about you’ is a mid-tempo blast in the head, with its ‘there’s something about you…..there’s something about you… there’s something about you’,,,chorus and power-chord guitar…it’s all over too quickly…I want MORE!!!!!!

The DFC’s

''The Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs and the Don't Fucking Cares" was a phrase first coined to describe The Kills/YYY's gig at the London Astoria two years ago. The DFC’s decided it could be better used to describe their mixture of New York 76 guitar-crash frenzy and London 77 blah blah attitude!

Definitely a band to kick start the party, their bitterly obsessive love/hate relationship with the 21st Century - shapes their underground pop songs and twisted world view. These "really gutsy Punk rock driven songs"* are influenced by Kraut rock, Black Flag, the Stooges , Velvets and American 90s guitar rock. If Wire covered the Fun House album you would be getting close to their live sound. Märta's incendiary vocals throw petrol on to the guitar-bass-drum conflagration!

The Don't Fucking Cares 3 british blokes & Märta Larsson from Sweden on vox – have a new single out February the 23rd 2009 on 7" vinyl and CD, Underage Demon/Nihilism is a Fact of Life.
Guy Ritchie's film Rocknrolla also features a blast of Download off the bands first EP.
