PIENZA ETHNORKESTRA: Indiens d'Europe ( Soleil Zeuhl 14 co-produced by 12 prod.)
Line-up is :
- James Mac GAW (Magma, One Shot) : bass (yes, not guitar, he plays bass too)
- Daniel JEAND'HEUR (One Shot) : drums, percussions
- Thierry BRUNEAU : electric hurdy gurdy
The music was recorded live during summer 2005 and is very heavy, the electric hurdy gurdy being treated like a guitar with a lot of power & distorsions. Folk is just a basis for this powerful great jam between 3 exceptionnal players that each push the boundaries of their instrument in very unusual ways : distorted electric hurdy gurdy, explosive drums & a HUGE Zeuhl bass that goes chorus almost every minute. Difficult to name.....explosive-zeuhl-folk ?
