GOAT (JP / Headz)

Gast, Patrick Wolf, Tunng and John Foxx.

Singles 'No Sign and 'King Of The Holloway Road' were championed by BBC 6 Music's Marc Riley. Bas Jan is ready to tour europe/UK in Sept. Availability: Europe/UK from 24 August to 30 September 2018.

Etienne Jaumet is the name behind the legendary French band Zombie Zombie, The Married Monk, The Tribute to La Monte Young (with Spacemen Three's Sonic Boom), to name just few of the bands he's played with. He plays sax with James Holden live band. When his henchman (Cosmic Neman) is not around beating on the drums for the band-beyond-the-grave, Zombie Zombie, Etienne Jaumet takes control of a spacecraft that only he can manage, cruising outer space on a quest for a deeper sound. As a solo performer, he delves into a box of inspirations drawn from horror movie soundtracks, jazz, French 1970s avant-garde, vintage italo, kosmische, library music and psychedelia, concocting a sound that is sensuous, intoxicating. Breathtaking in its imagination and cinematic scope, Jaumet's live show which takes in saxophone and a vast array of vintage keyboards and synthesizers is essential viewing. 'Night Music", his first CD on Versatile Records (2009) was produced by Carl Craig. "La Visite", his second album was out in 2014. In September 2018 Etienne will have a new album on Versatile Records with covers of jazz classics: Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Duke Elington, Art Ensemble of Chicago… again played with his signatures analog synths, drum machine and alto sax.

BELLY BUTTON (FR)

Belly Button was one of the most unique French band during the late 90s. With a mix of hardcore energy and syncopated rhythms, they have been labeled free-core to mambo-stoner for their sound. The minimal format of bass/drums have allowed them to explore multitudes of musical ideas. Belly Button has shared the stages of the time with Fugazi, Young Gods, NoMeansNo, Ruins and Sabot. They played hundreds of shows in Europe before separating in 1998. Following the break up, Fred (bass/vocal) moved to Berlin where he joined King Khan & The Shrines as the organist. Franck (drummer/chorus) created the label Sonore, specialized in Japanese experimental music (Satanicpornocultshop, Satoru Wono, Yuko Nexus6) and moved to Tokyo. Both back in France, Fred and Franck reformed Belly Button in 2015. The potency is still there, but with a different approach - years of musical experiences added more depth and precision. Their revival has resulted in a dozen of concerts at venues such as Iboat club in Bordeaux and Villette Sonique festival in Paris. Currently, Belly Button is finishing 8 titles for a record to complete their long-awaited trilogy with Both and Debeso. They will tour in the Spring of 2018 and would like to play at your venue.

MURCOF X WAGNER (MX, FR / In Fine Music)

Unique blend of synthetic and acoustic textures this collaboration between Mexican Ambient figurehead Murcof and multi-award winning French classical pianist Vanessa Wagner showcases a wide-ranging conception of minimalism including compositions by Philip Glass, Ligeti, John Cage, Erik Satie. They also put in Aphex Twin's "Avril 14th," too, as a nod to their interpretations. "The minimalist and repetitive music we chose for this album has strongly influenced the current electronic producers," notes Wagner. "There is an obvious connection between these musical styles." "This idea of fusing sounds of different sources so that the borders between them become blurred has been an interest of mine for years," explains Murcof. "And in the album « Statea » this was a very important goal to achieve, to have the piano and electronics exist in their own domains at some moments and at other moments have them become a single entity."

DUANE THE JET BLACK EEL (US / Jack White's Third Man Records and XL Recordings)

Just when we thought we’d seen it all we had the chance to see last Summer the first Europe show of young Duane The Jet Black Eel - and he effortlessly blew us away. Think Richard Hell at CBGC’s with the androgynous charisma of Prince and David Bowie (yes!). At 19, Duane Gholston, a young musician from Detroit, caught the attention of Jack White's Third Man Records and XL Recordings. Over the past six years, he has recorded and performed with two projects: Duane: the Teenage Weirdo and Duane: The Brand New Dog. His new project is called DUANE: THE JET BLACK EEL, and reflects a committed and forceful discourse that directly confronts "Trump America"! Above all, he is a strange and provoking young man who struggles against a classic vision of America with rock songs denouncing neoliberal conservatism, homophobia in the black community and systematic racism in the USA.

PIERRE BASTIEN (FR / Rephlex / Morphine)

RADIAN (AT / Thrill Jockey)

The long-standing experimental group Radian has been dealing with the relation between structure and abstraction and gained world wide attention promoted by the label Thrill Jockey. Martin Brandlmayr, John Norman and Martin Siewert combine the traditional instrumentation of rock music with extremely minimalist, abstract structures. They create a space of tension between extreme dynamics, freely improvised parts and meticulous construction. Their fifth and recent release 'On Dark Silent Off' is about the juxtaposition of extremes and contrast. It took inspiration from modern and contemporary works of art, from the abstract paintings of Ad Reinhardt to 'Outer Space', an impressionistic horror film by fellow Austrian Peter Tscherkassky. Vienna is the home of Radian who have been influenced by and shaped the city’s vivid scene of electronica since the early 2000s. Generally available / Europe/UK.

YOUNG MARBLE GIANTS (UK / Domino)

Twenty-nine years after its release, Young Marble Giants’ legendary ‘Colossal Youth’ (on Rough Trade Records, recorded in 1980 in five days and mixed in 20 minutes) remains a landmark in post-punk music, an enigma of its own, acclaimed by musicians and audience over the years. Formed in 1978 in Cardiff, the trio’s music was constructed around the powerful and minimal instrumentation of brothers Philip and Stuart Moxham on bass and guitar, supporting the naive untrained vocals of Alison Statton. The band split in 1980, reformed in 2006 for a world-wide serie of amazing shows (with Julie Tippex!) and called it a day in 2015. In the 80s, after Young Marble Giants, Stuart played with The Gist, Alison with Week End and Spike. The big news in 2018 is that, following the reissues by Tiny Global Productions label of The Gist and Alison and Spike's albums, they all decided to go back on the road. Stuart, Alison and Spike will perform a best-of set their whole carrer - and guess what - Phil and Drew Moxham might very well join in. Generally available / World.
