BABYLON FIGHTERS: Position crash


This band from St-Etienne was the precursor of the rub-a-dub in France, Babylon Fighters was one of the most important references of the "alternative movement". From the mid 80's to its split in 1992, they have revisited reggae, dub and ska. Between 1987 and 1991 they have produced 3 albums. The last one "Shut up, do not shutdown" was very disappointing and it will spell the end of the group a year later ... After their signature with Bondage records in 1989 they have produced this wonderful album "Position crash" also reprinted on Crash Records in 2005.

Members were:
Birdy...............................voices
Fred Denis......................guitars
Patrick Bylebyl................bass
Philippe Combe..............drums
Jean-Luc Aube................keyboard
Jean-Pierre Guillot.........sax

LES TETINES NOIRES: fauvisme et pense-bête

In Normandy in 1980, at the age of 13 years, Hubaut Emmanuel, aka the Earl of Eldorado, and William Lamy, aka Goliam, founded Les Tétines Noires. The duo signed with french label Boucherie Productions to record the title "Crazy Horse" on the compilation "La Relève". Accompanied by Marcus on bass, Les Tétines Noires released their first album "Fauvisme et pense-bête" in 1990. The band play a crazy music inspired by irock / new wave, dada and the record is very well received by the press. Then they recorded the second album "Brouettes" in 1991 with a new bassist Eduardo Leal de la Gala.
In 1992 Anthony Perez, aka Entonie, became the new bassist. The gigs become crazy. A hundred concerts in France, Europe, the Eastern and United States leave rooms littered with feathers, sugar, steam Incense, decibel saturated and messed up and fascinated spectators.
Les Tétines Noires leave Boucherie Productions, Nicolas Barrot (drums since 1991) left the band and was replaced by Jerome Sudan. They record the concept album "12 têtes de mort", released in 1995. An album much more violent and industrial production and neat (signed Amadou Sall, ex Treponem Pal). The sleeves of the first two albums were produced by Joel Hubaut. The 12 sleeves of "12 dead heads" are released by 12 contemporary artists (including Hubaut Joel, Ben, Orlan, Fabrice Hybert, Daniel Spoerri, John Giorno ...).
In 1998, one of the influences of the group, Christian Death, takes a title of Les Tétines Noires "Washing head", as the "Washing Machine" on the album Pornographic Messiah.
