Switzerland 2017 - Sisters Of Duras - Us Biker Girls

This year's change in the Swiss selection process was supposed to halt these things. No longer were we to see endless strings of bedroom troubadours and witless pub bands parading their dubious wares across the internet, we were told. Boo! So thank heavens for the few bold acts who decided to advertise their wares via the medium of YouTube so that we could all share the fun. And boy, fun!

It's hard to know where to start with these girls. The plodding riff rock? The cheesiest of all Swiss cheese videos? The utterly bored look on the bass player's face? That drummer? THAT DRUMMER?!! Blend them all together and you've got a confection of the highest Dunning-Kruger quotient of the season so far. Oh yes, it's that much of a treat!

So press play, sit back and gawp at a rare treat in these new days of Swiss seriousness. That reminds me, I wonder what Männerchor Steili Kressä are up to…?


  1. Yes it's fantastic, I had to read this a couple of times btw

  2. That makes Alex Angel's production values look totally Hollywood!

  3. The Sisters had a couple of songs in the Swiss open selection last year, but one was an old track so it was disqualified. I love how they seem gripped by an eternal sadness, but they're not letting that stop them get in the way of the rock.

    Have you seen Männerchor Steili Kressä's protest song? They were understandably not happy with the end of the web platform system.
