‘Struggle, struggle, to the end,” sings prison guard’s daughter Teresa Suárez on her band’s new single, which was produced by Talking Heads co-founder Jerry Harrison and released last Friday on Rise Records. As a teenager in Guadalajara, Mexico, Suárez found her musical salvation in punk rock after seeing a band called Lesbian Bitches From Mars. It was only natural then that she should change her name to Teri Gender Bender and start her own band called Le Butcherettes, whose first album, Sin Sin Sin, was produced by Mars Volta’s Omar Rodríguez-López. With a charismatic and often bizarre stage presence, as well as vocal prowess every bit as intense as punk icons Patti Smith and Siouxsie & The Banshees, Suárez is known for abusing her guitar and keyboards while sporting a blood-spattered butcher’s apron, collaborating with the likes of Iggy Pop, and working her way through nearly a dozen band members. She also collaborated with Rodríguez-López on an eerily atmospheric song called “Eli” — which you may remember from one of the more unsettling scenes in the first season of True Detective — and does a mean version of Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball.” Unjustly or not, Le Butcherettes will not be the headliners at this show, so try to show up on time for once.
