the night the volcanoes awaken

/// Samedi 19 juillet 2008

May the force be with us…
Volcanic manifestations are diverse, and they all command respect. Hayward, once the legendary drummer of cult group This Heat, personifies a slow lava flow, irrepressible, creating disorder within our emotions. Compaore, our dear Marseille drummer and his well-named combo, spit out thousands of sparks, multicoloured explosions, rockets. Then the young Chinese of Far East Network step on stage, with muffled rumbles and terrestrial creaks orchestrated by Master Otomo, like a revolutionary underwater volcano emerging off the coast of Asia. Frioul island shakes to its bottom, and Waters and Earth talk to us…
