Turzi biography
Hailing from Paris TURZI is the brainchild of Romain Turzi. He started as a solo producer where Record Makers released his album 'Made Under Authority' in 2005. Soon he began to gather some collaborators in order to implement his ideas based on a classic band instrumentation. Their debut appeared in 2007 conspicious by the use of song titles beginning with an 'A'. It received some enthusiastic reviews predominantly coming from the avantgarde scene.

TURZI's music can be best described as a conglomerate of psychedelic, progressive electronic and krautrock with obsessional rhythms and presented in a modern avantgardistic outfit. This is expressing the search of new sounds, an experimental approach in total. The band define their own music as 'rock disciplinaire' (disciplinary rock), as each track is structured around a rhythm and different sound patterns which are repeated, amplified and modified.

The band's live performances are always special events provided with room for improvisational excursions. Being wellknown at least in France Romain Turzi is cooperating with several other musicians, for example remix activities together with keyboarder and producer Sebastien Tellier. 2009 saw the new album 'B', also released by French Record Makers, this time worked out with the focus on more electronical elements.

Turzi Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Rivertree
Special Collaborator Psych/Space Team & Band Submissions

4 stars Is it brilliant or does it simply express mental laziness? This TURZI debut holds 13 songs, all titles begin with an 'A'. Just listen before you try to come to a decision! First of all - according to the musical output it would be unfair to call them lazy. Consequently ambitious they have their second album 'B' out in the meanwhile (2009). When considering the amount of corresponding alphabet letters we have to expect a bunch of albums until arriving the final 'Z' ... in 40 years or so. Now you know - TURZI obviously differ, have an unique corporate identity at least.

The band name derives from mastermind Romain Turzi (guitar), who started as a solo performer with the approach to work out some sort of avantgarde output. After one self-produced album he decided to form a real band and in the meanwhile they are an insider's tip when it comes to experimental music. And so much the more this counts for their live performances. TURZI are standing for an odd symbiosis of psychedelic/space, synthy-pop and electronically coloured krautrock which is quite exceptional I would say.

On 'A' TURZI open an unique mixed bag of Kraftwerk adapted robotic electronics, vocoder modified and whispering voices, spacey echoed guitars, diversified keyboards and hypnotic rhythms which is impressing. Can't pick up a special track here really - this is an album which surely should be checked in its entirety. As for the context they bring up typical French themes concerning religion (Jesus and Allah - coupled with a pun referring to the politically controversial actor Alain Delon) as well as war themes with the song Afghanistan which is a rather catchy exemplar.

Well ... trying to define some boundaries for a summary ... for example if you like Can and the early Pink Floyd in the same way and imagine to hear them performing as a unity - check this! I would even count 'A' among the rare neo-krautrock albums you are able to find nowadays - which means not simply rehashing the 1960/70's, but so much the more picking up the spirit in order to work out something new in some way. Highly recommended - 4.5 stars!
