O yes, a complete French night. It happens. We'll do the presentation in Flemish to balance it out. 3 of our favorite French musical acts. Very different from each other if we talk about style, but still they can & should please every pointy musical lover. Don't miss this quoi.
French pioneer experimental rock band formed in the early 90's by Lionel Fernandez, Erik Minkkinen and Nicolas Mazet, SISTER IODINE is a rare band who with "Blame" is releasing only now their 5th studio album. Originally born on the ashes of no wave, their music searches through some sort of terminal confusion between rock and chaos; colliding to original raw and atonal no wave, their primitive love of noise music, eruptions and assaults coming from free music; tapes collage, a bitter moisture humected in industrial music, and maybe even poisonous climaxes taken from black metal influences...
Blanche Lafuente : Batterie
Nina Garcia : Guitare
Morgane Carnet : Saxophones
"Musique improvisée, qui frappe, qui vrille, qui s'harmonise, qui se lance, déroule ou retombe. Trois musiciennes issues des scènes impro et noise parisiennes."
