DF n°100, Interview with FAITH & THE MUSE, December 21st, 2009


We met William Faith as his band played at Le Crock More in Perpignan for a very memorable show. The audience was hysterical, and it was one of those moments when you feel a real communion between the band and the audience. Their album :Ankoku Butoh: had just been released, so we talked a lot about that and the career of the band. During this same show, we made a review of the French translation of the American classic book of essays Apocalypse Culture
The photos below were taken in Perpignan during their show at Le Crock More on November 28th, 2009, and at the Nuits Underground au Palais on July 24th, 2010. Thanks to Fred for the interview shot and to Jean-Sébastien for his recorder.

DF n°96, Interviews with DEUTSCH NEPAL & DER BLUTHARSCH, October 26th, 2009


This show was programmed just before the show of And Also The Trees in a beautiful chapel in Toulouse, so we started by playing some songs from this cult band, then we broadcasted two interviews we had in Paris with our all-time-hero Peter Andersson from Deutsch Nepal and Albin Julius from Der Blutharsch. It took place on September 21st at a venue called Le Zebre, in a kind of cabaret atmosphere. During this show, we also did a review of the film The Serpent's Egg by Bergman as this strange piece of cinema was just released on DVD in France.

DF n°95, Interview with LEFDUP & LEFDUP, October 12th, 2009


In September 2009, we had the opportunity to meet Jérôme and Denis Lefdup at Le Snark, the place where they work in Paris. Their last film, Histoire Trouble, had just been projected during the Etrange Festival. These two guys are really geniuses of their kind, using images and sounds in an iconoclast way. In France, their work as graphic designers, musiciens and video innovators became famous with the TV shows Haute Tension in the eighties and L'Oeil du Cyclone in the nineties. It was a time when we thought that everything was possible with the TV medium. Unfortunately, TV became the insane absurdity that it is now. We talked about these TV shows, their last film and many other things during this long interview. It was a great sharing moment with these two brothers whose work has often been compared to The Residents.

Here is the list of songs we played:

AND ALSO THE TREES, The critical distance/The Saracen's head

DF n°94, Interview with BRUCE LABRUCE, September 28th, 2009


We met Canadian film-maker Bruce LaBruce as his film Otto, or Up with Dead People, was projected at the Etrange Festival in Paris. We had been following his cinema for quite a while, and this new film was among his best ones, exploring a melancholy neo-gothic vein we had not been used to in his films, even though humour is still present, and of course a lot of sex between males and artful creativity. Apart from talking about his work and broadcasting the interview we had with him, we also talked about the release on DVD of another film dealing with homosexuality, but in a much more classic vein: Victim by Basil Dearden.

Here's the playlsit :

DF n°90, Interview with NORSCQ / THE GRIEF, August 3rd, 2009


The Grief was one of my favorite bands as a teenager after I bought the Huis Clos box in a French cult recordshop named L'Atomium early in 1988. I find their music still as inspiring and original today as it was at the time. Norscq was one of the members of this trio and he went on in the electronic music field after the split of the band in 1992. Apart from being a legend, he is also a very lovable guy full of humor. We met him at his apartment in Paris a few weeks before the release of his Gelatinosa Substantia album. We talked extensively about this coming release. At the end of the show we talked about Ettore Scola's Brutti, sporchi e cattivi, which was released on DVD in France, but the very end of the show is missing.
Norscq's portrait was made by our talented photographer MySS.

For this show, we had an interview with Geoffroy D. from French martial-synth-pop masters Dernière Volonté. The interview was made in Paris after their show at Le Café de la Danse. At that same moment, my colleague Sebastien told me about a neofolk band named Spiritual Process who were making a cover song of Dernière Volonté's "L'Eau Pure". As they were charming young guys, we invited them in our studios for an acoustic show. They brought some records they liked, and then we broadcasted our extended interview with Geoffroy, made in a strange basement with the eyes of a crazy pitbull dog staring at us.

DF n°86, Interview with JARBOE, June 8th, 2009


When we met Jarboe, it was such a strong emotion that we almost felt like bursting into tears. Apart from her artistic talents and the fact that she has one of the most impressive female voice of our era, she is such a generous person, with that slow-speaking Southern flavour in her accent, and she has such a charisma that you can only be seduced. Meeting her was a real gift, and I hope we will have the opportunity of talking to her again in the near future. We dedicated this radio show to her work, which is very eclectic, and that's a good thing!

Here's the playlist:

DF n°81, Interview with DRAHOMIRA SONG ORCHESTRA, March 30, 2009


Drahomira Song Orchestra is one of France's most hidden treasures. Their music is pure obsessional beauty. This concert at the Maison des Métallos was a real revelation and it gave us the will to open our commemorative compilation Icy Breath on Burning Flesh with this very creative band.

DF n°78, Interview with FRONT 242, February 16th, 2009


We met Patrick Codenys from the Belgian band FRONT 242 as they came to play in Toulouse at the famous local venue called Le Bikini. We talked about the story of these pioneers of the Electronic Body Music style, and Patrick told us a great deal of anecdotes. In some ways, it is the second part of a longer show, since in the previous radio programme, we had an interview with the dance company LA ZAMPA and Patrick Codenys created some soundtracks for their performances.
