DF n°124, Interview with ASMUS TIETCHENS & Review of THE PSYCHICK BIBLE, December 20th, 2010


We met Asmus Tietchens as he came to play at the venue Lieu-Commun in Toulouse. This guy is a real genius and he has produced so many albums that it was quite hard to know where to begin with. During the same show, we did a review of the French translation by Camion Noir of The Psychick Bible, the cult book by Genesis P. Orridge. Jean-Pierre Turmel of the label Sordide Sentimental did a wonderful job on that book so it was necessary for us to talk about it.

Here's the playlist:

DF n°122, Interview with ATARAXIA, November 22, 2010


Ataraxia is a band we followed since their very beginnings in the early nineties. The androgynous, powerful voice of Francesca Nicoli was very impressive and we could already feel the originality of a great band. They are very literate people, excellent musicians and they have tried many different things throughout their career which shows their will to always explore new territories. When we learned about their playing in Lyon, we took our car, even if it was a long ride, and went to see them because we knew we would not be disappointed. The show was just excellent, presenting a lot of songs from Llyr and Kremasta Nera, and a heart-breaking cover of "Gloomy Sunday" with lyrics translated into Italian. Francesca Nicoli has charisma and generosity, and I was happily surprised when she told me we could make the entire interview in French, with her charming Italian accent.

Here's the playlist:

COIL, The Auto-Asphyxiating Hierophant
JOB KARMA, Empire's collapse
LIFE GARDEN, Petals

DF n°121, Interview with NICOLAS WINDING REFN, November 8th, 2010


Since we saw the film Fear X, we knew that Nicolas Winding Refn's visionary talents would make him one of the most important film directors of today. The fascinating beauty of such experimental works as Bronson and Valhalla Rising confirmed it. We met him as he was beginning to shoot his coming film, Drive, which received a Prix de la Mise en Scène at the Cannes Film Festival the following year. We talked about art and cinema, of course!

DF n°119, Interview with THIERRY ZABOITZEFF, October 11th, 2010


The dark, expressionistic and poetic compositions of Thierry Zaboitzeff have always been what fascinated us the most in Art Zoyd's albums. He created a very personal universe and language that is much easily described by images than by words. We met him during the Rock in Opposition festival in Carmaux in which he played some of his most well-known pieces, especially the ones he made for Art Zoyd like "Unsex me here" or "Baboon's Blood". Even though his physical appearance can seem quite terrifying, he is a very charming, good-tempered, almost shy person when you get to talk with him.

Here's the playlist:

DF n°118, Interview with ART BEARS, September 27th, 2010


Art Bears has never been an easy band to classify. Between 1978 and 1981, they have released three classic albums, full of beauty and creativity, at the crossroads between folk and contemporary music, and based on the eccentric and gothic expressivity of Dagmar Krause's vocals. A reformation of the band with the three original members in Carmaux for the Rock in Opposition festival was something not be missed. The medieval elegance, avant-garde song constructions and hypnotic ceremonial aspect of the show stay very vivid in our memory. We talked with Fred Frith, who speaks French fluently, about this band that was active 30 years ago and it seemed to be a real pleasure for him to re-explore these old songs, as if they had been written by someone else. During this show, we also taked about a very strange (real or imaginary?) film-maker named JX Williams as a book was just released on this iconoclast of the Hollywood film industry.

DF n°115, Vinyl Collection Show, August 16th, 2010


Sometimes, especially in the Summer season, we take our vinyl collections to the radio studios and we play some of our old records. After a presentation of the coming concerts during the first hour of the show, we then programmed some vinyls, some were quite new, others from our eighties archives. Our friend Jérôme was here (who some of you might know through his projects Porn.Darsteller and La Mort de l'Hippocampe) and also Ottomas (who appeared on some compilations on the Invasion Planète electro label) and who played exclusively soundtrack music. The show lasted more than five hours and a half, but it is always enjoyable to listen to these weird pieces of music.

DF n°113, Live and Interview with ARNICA, July 19th, 2010


In July 2010, we organized two concerts with the Catalan band Arnica, the first one in a paleontological museum, with a very powerful ritual sound, and the other one, amongst the ruins of a medieval castle, in the Auvergne region. As we traveled back, we stopped at our radio studios in Toulouse for an interview and some songs played acoustically. We were quite tired, but this radio session is the conclusion of a fantastic trip.

DF n°112, Interviews with NOX and DENIS FRAJERMAN, July 5, 2010


During this show, Denis Frajerman, from French avant-garde band Palo Alto, paid us a friendly visit. We had already received him in 2004. It was the opportunity to listen to some unreleased songs.

DF n°111, Live with CATHALE & CLONE, June 21st, 2010


This show was held during the Fête de la Musique in France. We received two local artists: Clone, who produces a minimal drone ambient music, and Cathale. The music of this woman is very shamanic and primitive, out-of-time and ancestral at the same time, with the voice as the central medium. Both musicians came with their strange instrument, and at the end of the show, they even improvised music together. On the spot. They did not know each other before this show. So it was really improvised, and there was a magic atmosphere during this show.

DF n°109, Interviews with HINT & LES HORLOGISTES, May 10th, 2010


We have a special story with the Band HINT. We are the same age. We saw one of their very first concerts and we watched them grow. So it was a real pleasure to meet them and talk about those golden 90s when they produced their unique mixture of noise rock, ambient, free jazz, metal industrial and cinematic atmospheres. During this show, we also received in the studios the experimental/minimalist band LES HORLOGISTES as they were going to perform in our city. A friendly moment.
The photograph of HINT was taken by Sylvain Fogato.

DF n°106, Interview with CHRISTOPHE LORENTZ, March 15th, 2010


This show can be divided into two parts. In the first one, we had a phone call from Christophe Lorentz, who wrote in the company of Sophie Noël the book Charles Manson : le gourou du rock. The authors focused on the impact that this figure had on popular music culture, and it is quite disturbing to see the hundreds of bands (especially in the industrial music genre) who have been influenced in some ways or another by the sordid stories and fantasies revolving around this character. We listened to a lot of the artists that do appear in the book. In the second part, we talked about the cinema of Pietro Germi, an important Italian film-maker, who is not so well-known by now but who directed some masterpieces.

Here's the playlist :

DF n°104, Interview with JULIA KENT, February 15th, 2010


We met Julia Kent as she came at the Bus Palladium in Paris to present her first album. Alone with her cello, she achieves a very enveloping, emotional music thanks to loops, delay effects and a very varied approach to her instrument. Of course, she is no newcomer since she has played with so many fantastic artists for so many years. Among them, Anthony & The Johnsons, Angels of Light or Jarboe. It was a pleasure to evoke all this with her and to talk about her first release that was inspired by airports and the transitional spaces they evoke.  Then we came back in time to explore the comic strip universe of Jean Image as his classic film "Jeannot l'Intrépide" was re-issued.
