Pierlé - Mud Stories
This is my favourite album. If I had to live with only one CD,
that would be this one. After having listened to the lyrics and its
fragile poetry and beauty, I found out that girl has sung everything
that is in my head
- The Naughty Nought (holidays in Europe)
It deals with my favourite band. It means 'sorcerer' in Icelandic.
They made two albums before renaming themselves The Sugarcubes and
changing their music
unfortunately! Their music is really strange,
dark and obscure.
- My Sister = My Clock
When dEUS was doing interesting music
is completely incredibly eclectic
With this CD, you can feel
that Rudy and Stef were going to leave, because it is not really an
album of the band dEUS, but of the members of dEUS. There is a lot
of Zappa and Beefheart influence in this "album", but with
freshness and originality.
- We Need New Animals
Contrary to Mandi, I like this album best than the first one. I
think it's less easy and more original
Khan - Dance Klore
A band from my hometown, Metz. They play pop-rock-jazzy (and sometimes
ska, and sometimes reggae
) music, with plenty of voice distortion,
funny weird noises, strange sounds, dark melodies and stuff like that.
The guys are singing half German, and a little bit of French and of
English. So, you'll have a chance to understand what they say
Zappa and The Mothers of Invention - We're Only In It For
is the first Zappa album my brother gave me to listen to, when I
was 7 years old or something like that
I've immediately found
this album funny, and now I still find it incredible
My Jazz - In the Lost Souls Convention
Unfortunately, the band does not exist anymore. But all the members
of it are still very active! Indeed, Kiss My Jazz is, a kind of potpourri
of (almost) all the best Belgian bands, that's why their music is
so unusual, original, diversified, and absolutely unique.
Swoon - Life= a Sexy Sanctuary
Well, first the title reminds me the name of a great website
;-p this new Zita Swoon album is really fantastic! Every album that
Zita Swoon releases, I'm surprised
If you're in a bad mood,
on a morning, go listening to "BananaQueen"! You'll feel
This is an album I've found in Reykjavik. I first saw this band
performing live, in a small reporting, on French TV, maybe 3 years
ago; the duration of the music I heard from them was about 10 seconds
But I thought WOW! It quite sounds like The Sugarcubes, but with more
energy and foolishness. Pönk's not dead!
Horrowitz and his Combo - Au Bain Marie
Another band of Rudy Trouvé's numerous ones
sounds a bit like KMJ, but it's more crazy, and it's less rock music
I'm afraid I can't describe it more than that (and above all, in English!).
You'll have to listen to it
