myspace band of the week
Czecho No Republic hails from Tokyo, not Czechoslovakia like my great-grandparents. Two of the three band members played in The Mirraz before the Quattro boys stepped in. They formed in March 2010 and just released their first CD Erectionary sold exclusively at Tower Records.
Most of the songs on Czecho No Republic’s myspace are demos. They have a stripped down acoustic quality, almost tropical, which may explain why the demo CD cover has the band members hanging from their necks on a palm tree. “Call Her” from Erectionary, though, has a fun pop hook and “Goodbye” brings them closer to indie-pop territory. Tropical or not, this trio will be making waves in the indie scene.
