Putting punk and protest back into the mainstream! -THE GUARDIAN
Bold, brainy and ballsy, Louise Distras represents nothing less than the rebirth of British punk; reinvented for a new generation. With true „outlaw spirit and renegade soul“, sheís taking the UK, Europe, Canada, Japan, and now the USA by storm, with the stateside release of her debut album Dreams from the Factory Floor released worldwide via Pirates Press Records.
For a world grown exhausted of Simon Cowell’s X Factor synth-pop, there is a raw emotional honesty to this Brit punk sensation that might be considered too incandescent, all too real, but you know what? Louise Distras couldn’t care less.
Over the past three years, Louise’s message has spread like wildfire across Europe, USA and Canada, bringing her to the forefront of the international underground and beyond as the first punk artist to crossover into the elusive British mainstream in decades, taking in major festivals appearances such as Glastonbury, Rebellion and sharing stages with punk pioneers Billy Bragg, Mick Jones (The Clash), Buzzcocks, New Model Army, Stiff Little Fingers, The Damned, Television, Cocksparrer, UK SUBS, Steve Ignorant (Crass), Tim Barry, Kevin Seconds (7 Seconds), Street Dogs, US Bombs, and more along the way.
The questing power of punk is alive and well, and its name is Louise Distras…“ and you can bet your last fiver you’ll be seeing a lot more of this talented songsmith in the not too distant future. Most likely hitchhiking, guitar slung over her shoulder on the way to a town near you!
