Noisy Champs (CD)
In 1985, Guigou CHENEVIER, the leader of the French band ETRON FOU LELOUBLAN, had this funny idea of creating a trio entirely devoted to drums-and-sticks. He chose American Rick BROWN (V-EFFECT, FISH AND ROSES, RUN ON...) and British Charles HAYWARD (THIS HEAT, CAMBERWELL NOW...). The trio later became a duet, sometimes reinforced by Claude MARCOEUR, then the infamous Albert MARCOEUR in person ! LES BATTERIES even collaborated with John McENTIRE (TORTOISE) on its third album. The first album "Noisy Champs" (1986) has been reissued by Les Zut-O-Pistes, featuring five bonus-tracks, including one composition by Charles HAYWARD. Guigou CHENEVIER and Rick BROWN aimed at illustrating their own vision of the French Revolution. This ambitious project eventually saw the light of day in 1991, with the Musea release of "Démesure Révolutionnaire". The musicians' complementary work displays an amazing diversity by the use of various noises, synthesizers, vocals, saxophone, and the participation of PEENI WAALI's Jean-Marc ROSSEL (Hurdy-gurdy & accordion) and Michel MANDEL (Clarinets). A true innovative and captivating music made of discovery and surprise. Not to be missed !
