Look de Bouk, L'âcre hymne aérait Rome
"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
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unpublished material and reflects a rare live activity.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.
