”La terre, il se pourrait bien après tout que ce soit une espèce
de merveilleux petit appareil enregistreur, plaçé là par on ne sait qui,
pour capter tous les bruits qui circulent mystérieusement dans l’Univers.”
Pierre Reverdy - ”En vrac” - 1929

”J’entends tous les bruits de la terre grâce à mes oreilles et mes nerfs de cristal
dans lesquels circulent le feu du ciel et celui des volcans.”
Michel Leiris - ”Le point cardinal” - 1927

"Go, go, go! ... Go! go! ..."
John Lee Hooker


Marvin Pontiac

deer and spotlight

John Lurie, the main founder of the NY's combo "The Lounge Lizards" in the late 70s and  actor in the famous Jim Jarmush' movies (Stranger than paradise - 1984, Down by law - 1986)  disappeared from NYC for quite one decade after a stalking incident. His whereabouts were a mystery and he is living now outside the United States on an island in a tropical climate where he spends much of his time painting.

After the amazing posthumous works of the African-Jewish musician, the legendary Marvin Pontiac in 1999, John Lurie is coming back with a new Marvin Pontiac CD issued last november: "The asylum tapes" , a twisted collection of songs about livestock, garden gnomes and horses falling down wells. Accompanying himself on guitar and banjo, Marvin’s plaintive voice is otherworldly. 

As enigmatic as the first CD, this new record "The asylum tapes" contains amazing short blues and unexpected songs.
