CraveOnstage | Band of the Month: Le Butcherettes Strip Down The Fiery ‘They Fuck You Over’ (Exclusive Performance)

A listen through Le Butcherettes’ new album A Raw Youth claws at the seams of what one immediately considers ‘punk rock’. Through a poet’s heart and furiously wild spirit, the third LP from Teri Gender Bender and friends puts a far more political snarl in the Mexican garage-punk world they inhabit, and the ferocity of passion through which they operate is equal parts enchanting and electrifying.

Le Butcherettes have two previous album releases, their 2011 debut Sin, Sin, Sin and the 2014 offering Cry Is For The Flies – but the momentum behind A Raw Youth propels the notion that this is their time to strike on a much larger scale. The band is comprised of Teri, drummer Chris Common and bassist Jamie Aaron Aux, who recorded the album at RLP Studios (The Morgue Portable Disaster Unit) in El Paso, Texas. Omar Rodriguez Lopez once again produced, as he has done for both previous Le Butcherettes’ releases. 

For our Band of The Month taping, Teri and Chris met us at an off-the-map restaurant in Hollywood, a secret location decorated with ornately weird artifacts, as if a rock star’s bedroom was decorated by Immortan Joe from Mad Max. The duo, in blood-red outfits, was astoundingly sweet and engaging in person, delivering a gorgeously stripped performance of a few new songs from A Raw Youth. Watch below as Let Butcherettes purge demons in “They Fuck You Over” exclusively on Crave:
