Glenn Branca
Symphonie n°16 “Orgasm” pour 100 guitares, basses et batterie

100 guitaristes

Glenn Branca, composition, direction

“De la musique symphonique pour des gens qui ont grandi avec le rock” : c’est ainsi que Glenn Branca, icône de la no wave, décrit ses œuvres pour cent guitaristes.

Pas deux, ni dix, ni même quinze mais cent ! Cent guitares ! Depuis plus de trente ans, Glenn Branca s’est fait le leader de cette horde sauvage de six cordes, sculpteur de symphonies électriques totalement uniques en leur genre. “De la musique symphonique pour des gens qui ont grandi avec le rock” : c’est ainsi que Glenn Branca, icône de la scène no wave new-yorkaise vénérée par Thurston Moore et Lee Ranaldo de Sonic Youth, Michael Gira des Swans et Page Hamilton d’Helmet, décrit ses œuvres pour cent guitaristes, comme cette seizième symphonie, sous-titrée Orgasm. Evidemment, sous le chaos et les entrelacs de riffs et d’accords plaqués, un océan s’agite. Une mer musicale fascinante, plus héritière d’avant-gardistes comme Steve Reich, La Monte Young ou Charlemagne Palestine que d’acteurs de la scène rock, et qui prend en concert une ampleur logiquement décuplée.

Préparation à la participation au concert
Mardi 17, mercredi 18 et jeudi 19 février de 13h30 à 20h30 (participation gratuite sur inscription)

Si vous êtes guitariste ou bassiste et que vous savez lire une partition, Glenn Branca vous propose de vivre une expérience musicale autour de sa symphonie n°16 “Orgasm”. Pour vous inscrire à ce projet, écrivez à l’adresse en précisant vos coordonnées.

Winter is coming!

WF web resTim Presley aka White Fence is back with a new album on Drag City.

For the Recently Found Innocent is many things — the 5th White Fence album, the 1st White Fence album to be recorded outside the bedroom fence (with live drumming!), the 1st White Fence record to be produced for Drag City. Plus also, a sophomore pump: the 2nd time that Tim Presley and Ty Segall have met to record music (does anyone remember Hair?), this time pure and simply committed in the name of White Fence. Inevitably, the collision at the intersection of all these winding roads is a beautiful pileup of deep impacts, graceful lines and open space embodied in sound, White on White, compacted for your eyes and ears to believe.

Mark your calendar! White Fence will be on tour January 2015 including 5 dates in France. 21 Marseille, Grim / 22 Bordeaux Rock Festival / 23 Nantes, Stéréolux / 24 Rennes, Ubu / 25 Paris (venue TBA).

Composer, guitarist and electronics innovator Richard Pinhas is recognized as one of France’s major experimental musicians. A pivotal figure in the international development of electronic rock music, Pinhas’ stature in France is analogous to Tangerine Dream’s in Germany: the father figure of an entire musical movement.

The pioneering, aggressive music produced by his band Heldon during the 1970s, fusing electronics, guitar and rock, heralded the industrial and techno to come and remains today vital and unsurpassed. The ‘Father’ of electronic music in France is also recognized as a world-class guitarist whose “diabolical guitar work” (Progression) earns comparisons with Robert Fripp.

Pinhas returned to music with a vengeance in the 1990s after spending much of the 1980s away. Beginning with DWW (1992) on Cuneiform Records, his numerous releases included projects with Peter Frohmader, John Livengood, Scanner, Pascal Comelade, Etienne Jaumet, Oren Ambarchi, Lasse Marhaug, Noel Akchote, Eric Borelva, and his son, Duncan Nilsson as well as solo works. He also resumed performing.

Since the ’90s, Pinhas began developing a system of electronic processing to use in performing live solo guitar concerts. Experimenting with tape loops and infinite delays, he expanded, transformed and even transcended the “Frippertronics” technique his friend Fripp used in his work with Eno, and “developed a set of personal parameters that stand on their own legs, his looping strata giving birth to interlocking patterns, chordal waves and even harmonic movements…” [Touching Extremes].

Richard is back from a 2 week tour in the US. He will soon be touring again in Japan. He is available for shows and festivals in Europe

Richard is available for solo shows or with his band.

We recently asked Stuart Moxham if Young Marble Giants ever played in Manchester and Glasgow back in the early 80′s:  “We played Manchester – at The Hacienda – but not Glasgow. We were supported by the Thompson Twins in Edinburgh and Stirling.”

Hi there,















We are super happy to share the new ‘aMAZing’ video of Trans Am feat. Nathan of Trans Am drinking water..


“This week, Trans Am released their tenth album, appropriately titled Volume X in the U.S., Japan and Australia – get hold of it at their label Thrill Jockey’s website here. For UK and European fans, the record will be out on August 11 – but fear not, the Maryland trio haven’t neglected us: today, they’ve announced a European tour, starting up in November, and marked the news with the video for ‘I’ll Never’, a crystalline chunk of mirrorball melancholy, which includes some of the finest drinking of water committed to celluloid we’ve seen. Cast your eyes over director Adam Heathcott’s handiwork above, take a look at the tour dates below and get details of their American shows, which continue at The Black Cat in Washington, D.C. tonight, at the label’s website..”

Call for Papers International Symposium
Disorder: Towards a social history of punk and post-punk

University of Paris Diderot
With University of Chicago Paris Center, University of Versailles Saint-Quentin, New York University Paris
Friday 3 – Saturday 4 April 2015

Punk and Post-Punk: two movements that emerged in the mid to late seventies, the latter supposedly born from the ashes of the former, with the golden age of Post-Punk lasting till about 1984. The sheer number of new bands was staggering, and hundreds upon hundreds have made a name for themselves (Sex Pistols, Siouxsie and the Banshees, PIL, Gang of Four, Slits, The Pop Group, Père Ubu, Lydia Lunch, Einstürzende Neubauten, Dead Kennedys, Kas Product, Die Form, Magazine, Joy Division, John Foxx, Virgin Prunes, Bauhaus, UK Decay…). The degree of experimentation was likewise bewildering. All the arts were impacted, perhaps more especially in Britain. There were themes that had not been aired before in the music industry.

These movements have been written about in specialised or general-interest publications (Simon Reynolds, Rip It Up and Start Again: Postpunk 1978-1984—these dates can of course be debated), but they have not been the subject of very much academic research.
The time is ripe to reflect upon these “expressive moments” in relation to the socio-political climate in which they emerged. The social sciences provide methodologies and tools: ethnography of the audience, the writing of social history, studies of artist/media relations, quantitative and qualitative studies of economic exchange, such as indie labels, distribution networks, advertising and communication strategies, etc.
The Punk/Post-Punk movements were steeped in the socio-political environment, especially because their audience was young, and their formulas (lyrics and “attitude”) are to be observed in relation to the social sphere. Their impact, if impact there was, needs to be complexified. We need to deconstruct all these notions before we can reassess any impact, image, or history. What reading can be given of these movements looking back at them? Was/were the movement(s) homogeneous? Do the chronological accounts stand up to scrutiny? Did the participants really have “agency”? Or are we, in retrospect, faced with a history in fragments, a series of isolated responses to economic situations, and individual political reactions to the social order? Was there radical change or continuity in either of the movements, musically or otherwise? Finally, is the temporality inherent in the term “Post-Punk” useful, or should other denominations prevail?

The conferences and discussion panels will concentrate on three main themes (the topics listed below are not exhaustive):

- The media and spheres of influence: who says what is Punk/Post-Punk?
- Commitment and provocation: Politics or posing?
- Recuperation
- The real impact on society (then and now)
- Art-school punk vs. street punk

- Aesthetics and politics of Punk/Post-Punk identities in contrast to established norms
- Expressions and production of marginality: sexuality, gender, race, ethnicity, social class
- Case studies of fan movements (fragmentation of the periods, of the public, etc.)
- Self-made fan-identity vs. the identities fabricated by the Majors: fashion, artifice and commerce of Punk/Post-Punk image making
- Importance of the home-made/hand-made in the construction of identities
- The effects of financial success

- Punk, Post-Punk and aesthetics: contemporary art (Throbbing Gristle, Test Dept, etc.)
- Punk/Post-Punk: nostalgia and posterity (1990-2015)
- Why the “Post-” in “Post-Punk”?

No limits will be placed either chronological or geographical.
Languages: conference papers and discussions may be in English or French.

Proposals to be submitted before 15 September 2014 and sent to

Submissions to be no more than one page long, and to include between three and five bibliographical references as well as a CV/résumé.
Papers must be original and unpublished.
Those papers selected for publication must be sent on or before 31 March 2015.
Conferences will be 20 minutes long, followed by 10 minutes of discussion.

Organizers: Paul Edwards, Élodie Grossi, Paul Schor.

Now on booking for october / november 2014 :


Australian noise pop duo CIVIL CIVIC has been touring a lot since 2010 and are working for some time now on their second album (debut album RULES released in 2011). It takes time and money, so you can already pre-order the upcoming album and help them finish it !


Dear Reader,

After two years of trial and error, gnawing doubts and sudden breakthroughs, all the hair-pulling and chin-rubbing and lost sleep and fist-fights, our second LP is taking solid shape.

It’s a big, ballsy expansion and escalation of the sonic turf we staked-out on our 2011 debut “Rules”, with more high-emotion and destruction and joy and carnage. Even at this stage, with the long and punishing mixing process ahead of us, we’re already scared of the results.

This thing is going to give people brain tumors (the awesome kind). All we wanted to do was make a jaw-droppingly awesome record, not some sort of hyper-music-weapon that gets us “black-bagged” in our sleep and end up working for the C.I.A.

But in the mean-time, you can not only secure yourself an advance copy of this potentially fatal disc but also make a vital contribution to it’s completion.

We’ve always been an unsigned, self-funded outfit, and we’ve already cleaned ourselves out on this thing, down to the last “clam”. So now we desperately need some “scratch” to fund the mixing and mastering process. Every penny will go into making this record sound fuuuuucking amaaaazing!

So if a fuuuuucking amaaaaaaazing CC album is something you feel you can get behind, please order your copy here, NOW, while we’re still alive and at large and ready to finish the job.

Sincerely yours, with love and affection,

Aaron and Ben
