On a winter night in 2007, Julien Pras andJimmy Kinast met at a tiny club in Bordeaux for the Berlin Vs Brooklyn show, a repetitive math-rock duet. The surprise that awaits them is huge: behind his drums, Benoit Busser is a perfect fusion of John Bonham and Todd Trainer. Blown away by his technic, Julien and Jimmy will  imagine on their side the band they could form together and finally achieve their musical fantasies.

By this time, Julien Pras was currently promoting the 5th album of his band Calc and was dreaming of a noisy psychedelia with Big muff pedals and plenty of reverberated guitars. On his side, Jimmy Kinast who held his bass during the 90’s in several noisy pop bands is feeding the same desire. It won’t take long before Benoit et Julien will start working together.  After three jubilant and productive rehearsals (two tracks are then developed) Jimmy join them behind the bass.

Obssesed by the 70’s, from Black Sabbath to Led zeppelin, and more recently by Dead Meadows and the band Witch, the three of them will form Mars Red Sky… The alchemy is here and they will soon be writting many songs together. Jimmy and Julien are sharing the microphone, their universe is heavy and aerial at the same time, especially based on the use of a particular tuning, a good half-dozen semitones below normal. Encouraged by the first concerts they played in Bordeaux and the response they received from a well surprised audience, they decided to record their songs properly, in the stones of this magical Spanish place called the Bardenas desert.

Pierre Fillon, in charge of the recording and the mixing, will help to shape and colour the whole project. In 2011, Mars Red Sky is finally ready to conquer the clubs all over Europe. Opening act for the great SLEEPY SUN from San Francisco, TWEAK BIRD, SHANNON WRIGHT, A PLACE TO BUTY STRANGERS, EARTH and KILLING JOKE at the Bataclan in Paris. After a tour in Germany and The Netherland in June, Mars Red Sky also played Les Eurockennes 2011 Festival on July 2nd with QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, MOTORHEAD, KYUSS LIVE…

Jimmy Kinast – bass

Certainly an interesting blend of math rock and stoner rock! I'll alert the psych team for evaluation.
