PRESS INFORMATION:
“Cobra Killer are Gina V. Dorio and Annika Line Trost. Both have played in bands in the former West Berlin since the age of 12/13. They formed Cobra Killer in January 1998, touring through Europe and revolutionising the then boring electronic music scene with their raucous show.

Uppers & Downers, their 5th full length studio album, sees Cobra Killer on fine form and sounding as defiant and unpredicatable as ever. Recorded in part at Einsturzende Neubaten’s “Andere Baustelle” studio in Berlin, and featuring appearances by such special guests as J. Mascis, Thurston Moore and Jon Spencer, the record is and a roller-coaster ride that sees the band pushing the limits and again going way beyond expectations to deliver an album thats sure to please their many fans, especially when they take to the road to present the songs in their unmistakeably energetic live show.”

SLEEVE NOTES:
“Cobra Killer are Gina V. D’Orio and Annika Line Trost. Both have played in bands in the former West Berlin since the age of 12/13. They formed Cobra Killer in January 1998, touring through Europe and revolutionising the then boring electronic music scene with their raucous show. In 2002, they took Australia and New Zealand by storm, supporting Peaches on various shows, including the Big Day Out Festival. Shortly thereafter, they supported Sonic Youth who were very impressed by the Cobra movement. Recently, they have wowed capacity crowds supporting other big names such as Marilyn Manson and Jon Spencer, who also guests on two tracks on this album.

Uppers & Downers, their 5th full length studio album, captures Cobra Killer at their best sounding as defiant and unpredicatable as ever. Recorded in part at Einsturzende Neubaten’s Andere Baustelle studio in Berlin, and featuring appearances by such special guests as J. Mascis, Thurston Moore and Jon Spencer, the record is and a roller-coaster ride that sees the band pushing the limits.”

Press Quotes:

“…Few acts belie the claim that electronic music lacks stage presence – chief amongst them Cobra Killer, who look like refugees from Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! and perform their set of charged, mutant disco like a pair of deranged go-go girls.” – The Wire

“…Better than the Beatles or Nirvana any day of the millennium.” – Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth)

“The hottest act in Berlin” – Arthur

“When Cobra Killer play live nobody can escape the grip of scarely dressed Gina V. D’Orio and Annika Line Troust, drowning themsevles in red wine and throwing their songs into the faces of the audience. Their stage presence has always been as over the top as their sound. Cobra Killer fashion as bold statement – as cliche and catchy as it is utterly moderna nd assaulting.” – Neptune

“This will get your party started. It will also have most of your guests asking you who it is and where can they get a copy. Get your mod clothes on and cut a rug, this shit will make you get up and move.” – Indie Workshop
