Petrol Girls

Music / Punk / Bristol, Graz, Austria, United Kingdom

Presented by: Musikexpress

When all of Paris was in flames during the French Revolution, it was the women’s group Pétroleuses whose pyromania shot free with a resolute political impetus. The name fits the Petrol Girls like a glove, as they have been sticking their fingers up at the Status Quo for ten years now. From feminism or anti-capitalism, to a clear positioning against racism, sexual violence or profit-driven climate collapse: the rage-filled guys and girls of the London quartet make no secret of their stance: on the contrary, they openly take a stand. Rare enough these days, especially when it comes to socially uncomfortable discourse. But this was always the spirit forming the heart of hardcore punk and its representatives. So it’s good that the Petrol Girls show no sign of relenting, even after a 2020 re-formation and two years of the pandemic. Instead, album number three, “Baby”, is ready to go and will be served up red hot on the Reeperbahn in September.
