The Nymphets

The Nymphets
As with many of the acts at CMW, Montreal’s the Nymphets had to be content with playing a show to an audience of 20 or so people. The way they played though, you would have imagined there were 2000 in attendance. The three-piece ran through a 25-minute set of supremely addictive Ramones-style punk songs with unflinching intensity, jerky limbs and a whole lot of unnecessary swearing. Theirs was a thoroughly captivating performance, easily one of the best at the festival, poor attendance notwithstanding.
