"L'âcre hymne aérait Rome" is an ode in which
Look de Bouk makes us regret tears we're stupidly shed because
of the disappearance of things. Those things that Perec described,
these things make up our daily life, those things we accumulate
with no reason, Voltaire's "superlfuous which becames necessary".
This legendary band offers musical flights of fancy that shift,
that charm, that play their melodies corresponding to hidden
emotions: the souvenir of teenage love stories, the noble
death of Kundera's or the retirement of Facteur Cheval's wheelbarrow.
But it is also a militant music that resists those beat and
aspetic corridors of radio sounds which trap the imagination.
An imaginary folklore like Nino Rota's with borborygmes, Pascal
Comelade's barroco or Boby Lapointe without words. Like Poulidor
when he was in good shape, Look de Bouk presents Pechno1
Hits which keep only the "popular" from its elder Techno.
1 "Pecno" is french argot for out of fashion countryman.
This CD mainly corresponds to the most of the "Lacrimae Rerum"
Lp issued in 1985 on the late AYAA label. It contains previously
unpublished material and reflects a rare live activity.
Early Times Collection
Putting forward un-new recordings: gold & times, filled with
an out-of-fashion genuiness. A music of feelings like some old out
of time whisky. An anti-revival binge because milleniums come one
after the other and we don't care.
