5 stars Great young band from Lyon, France, they are an ultra tight trio of Antoine Arnera (keyboards & vocals), Boris Cassone (bass, guitar, vocals), Guilhem Meier (drums, vocals). Their style is manic, frenetic punky high energy with nonsense lyrics. They bring to mind Zappa, Cardiacs, Samla Mammas Manna, Hamster Theater, Miriodor and other "circus" prog bands. They were one of the hits of the Rock In Opposition festival in 2013 (unfortunately I was having lunch during their set, doh!)

The band describe themselves as "the combined raw madness and virtuosity evoking thoughts of avantgarde-progressive basis like Frank Zappa, classic essence like Frederic Chopin or Igor Stravinsky, and theatrical approaches like Charlie Chaplin". Fortunately they don't take themselves too seriously, there is loads of humor here, though apparently a lot of it is potty mouthed if you know your French.

One of a number of really good young French bands bringing imagination and energy to the Avant scene.

Highly recommended for fans of high energy bonkers chaos
