INTERFERENCE SARDINES
 
This creative and fun band from Québec have released a new album recently.
They're recommended to fans of the Samla/Miriodor "school" of avant-rock.
 
Here's a description I took from Squidco:
 

"Interférence Sardines is a crazy group that makes serious music-or perhaps that should be a serious group that makes crazy music. If we were to describe them to you, you would swear that we were pulling your leg: a classical violinist who plays electric violin, an analphabetic drummer who plays written music, a school dropout on guitar who is a self-taught composer, a jock instrument-maker on base, and an electrifying singer on violin and acoustic mic. Both their instrumental and vocal music can contain a skillful mixture of improvisation and composition."-Ambiances Magnetique

A review of their album, Zucchini:

REVIEWS:
by Alan Freeman
in Audion #47 (UK), September 1, 2002

Getting back in character with the early days of Ambiances Magnétiques (I’m meaning bands like Conventum, Wondeur Brass, Les Granules, et al) Interférence Sardines are certainly the “crazy group that makes serious music” that the press release proclaims, and then questions if it should be the other way round. As eccentric as the name, this 5-piece troupe (plus sundry guests) amalgamate an astonishing array of diverse musics into a blend that welds everything from Balkan folk to power metal together, sometimes seamlessly fusing it into entitely new genres. Such mixtures can be daunting on first listen, but that’s the whole idea with Rock In Opposition, maybe a calypso here, a death dirge there, top it with a freak-out Zappa meets Fred Frith and John Zorn. Why not- indeed?!!

ARTISTS
Interférence Sardines; Andrée Bilodeau • Sébastien Doré • Lyne Goulet • Frédéric Lebrasseur • Philippe Venne
