With President Trump set to appoint a new judge to the Supreme Court and further tilt that institution even further to the right, the name Coathangers suddenly becomes relevant again as women’s rights advocates fear the reversal of Roe v. Wade. The Coathangers — the band — embody the frustrations and rage many people are feeling these days. On their new concert recording Live, which was recorded over two nights last year at Alex’s Bar, the Atlanta punk trio have their silly, goofy moments as singer-guitarist Julia Kugel manipulates a squeaky toy on “Squeeki Tiki.” But even that track, which rides along Meredith Franco’s rubbery, Slits-style bass lines and Stephanie Luke’s primal drumming, is full of unrestrained rage as the toy is used as a sarcastic kiss-off to “a bad memory.” Other highlights range from Franco’s “Burn Me” to Luke’s “Adderall.”
