Stonehenge biography
In September 1991, Sebastien SIOZADE (Guitars) and Olivier ROY (Keyboards, Vocals) work together and come up with one hour of improvisation. In December 1991, Sebastien meet Benoit TURCOTTE, drummer of the Quebec band SILENCE, who specialized in Pink Floyd covers. Then came along Eric LOPEZ (Bass). In February 1992, Sebastien and Olivier take the one hour recording and started to add some space for more improvisation. Some others songs take their shape : "Les ivresses mortes" with Sebastien singing and "2L2", a long and complex instrumental.

Benoit had to comeback to Quebec, his replacement was Laurent FOMPUDIE, fan of Led Zeppelin and Prog Rock music. Later that year the band gives his first concert and many more. They played their music while some painters are performing. While Sebastien goes with some long flights of aerial guitar in the SYD BARRETT style, Olivier fill the space with his powerful and inventive keyboards in the GENESIS style.

In February 1993, Eric quit the band, so the band is looking for a new bass player that would be a fan of the band Patrick GODEAU. One more big epic song is done: "Les Clowns exansangues" with his rock energy and Olivier singing. In December, the band recorded his big epic song. The next year the band is slowly dissolving with some turmoil between band members, giving their last concert in 1995. Sebastien left the band with personal issue, but he meet again Eric 5 years later with more positive energy. Patrick Godeau produced in 2010, the self-titled CD, that contains 74 minutes of music. It just a little sad that the 50 minutes of bonus material on this are demos with questionable sound and unfinished songs that had so much quality to be left in that state. Stonehenge is a hidden treasure in the archives of Progressive Rock Music.
