New recordings by Fabrice Eglin "Un jour sans nuage" sur Bandcamp
Complice il y a quelques années dans Howlin'Ghost Proletarians, Fabrice vient de publier ce bel album automnal entre Heldon et Fripp/Eno ... larsens et ondes sinusoidales, applats électriques joués sur une 6 cordes et un synthé numérique. Imaginary Landscape où on se pose, voyageurs immobiles.
We'll be on tour with Junko in November. I'm happy to tour again together. She is so amazing voice. Like Daniel Lowenbruck said she is "La grande Dame of Shriek". I remember our first meeting in Tokyo in 2002, her kindness. We played together for the first time in a live house in Kichioji, Tokyo. I proposed her to come in Europe for tour with Dustbreeders and record her first solo LP "Sleeping Beauty". I was surprised than she accepted join Yves, Thierry and myself. It was kind of Idol for me since i bought my first Hijokaidan "No harms, no Paris", several years before. That's sounds like nothing else. A great experience.
We take the road again in duo and with Dustbreeders. She'll tour with Mesa of the Lost Women too. In same time after her first solo boxset "The Very Best Of Junko", a second one with our collaborations will be out October's beginning (5 CDs + 1 DVD).

This summer i spent few days in Auvergne in Christophe Langlade and Colette house. We work on Dana Valser songs with Eva (voice), Christophe (acoustic guitars) and myself (banjo, lapsteel). 8 songs for a record project named "Antiguo". Eva wrore lyrics and Christophe guitar parts. It was an hard work for them. I must say im little bit a lazy musician. Still on work ...
Beautifully assembled limited to only 150 copies LP with silkscreened sleeves and obi strip: Billion Years Of Sighs features two duo workings by French avant guitarist Michel Henritzi, with Henritzi playing infinite tones on an aggressively articulated lapsteel. The A side is a duo with Junko, vocalist for Hijokaidan and it kind of has to be heard to be believed, with Henritzi combining long, doomy, pregnant drones of malevolent steel strings alongside some tactile, percussive fist assaults while Junko makes with some of her most emotionally chilling and hysterically disruptive free vocal shrieks and imprecations. It’s hard to believe that such a frail frame can generate the kind of high phantom electric tones of Junko without permanently damaging herself and somehow Henritzi’s more minimal (though still explosive) style brings out a quality of terror and despair in her vocals that sound like deep post-Patty Waters body sound blues. Incredible. Over on the flip Henritzi is joined by Rinji Fukuoka of Overhang Party/Majutsu No Niwa on violin, voice and percussion and the sound is closer to the amazing split LP Fukuoka cut with the late Jutok Kaneko back in the day, Searchin’ For My Layline, with Fukuoka’s dark, distant vocal drones and fuzz-punk eternal music stylings creating void-gargling zones of pure black tone that Henritzi blows apart with almost Charalambides-scale desert blues assaults and walls of pure Velvet thunder. Totally fantastic, beautifully packaged, highly recommended.
