DF n°147, Interviews with PER ASPERA & TONY LEDUC-GUGNALONS (CORPUS DELICTI), December 19th, 2011

For this show, we had an interview by phone with Tony Leduc-Gugnalons, the author of a biography dedicated to Corpus Delicti, La Déliquescence des ombres (Camion Blanc). This Nice-based band released three albums between 1992 and 1995, full of lushful melodies and ice-cold atmospheres. They are remembered as one of the most accomplished Gothic band in France. In a second part, we broadcasted the interview we had with Tomas from the dark ambient project Per Aspera. We met him as he was invited to play in Paris on September 24th for the Polish Industrial festival organized in Paris by Au-Delà du Silence. As far as cinema is concerned, we dealt with the release on DVD of the film Je veux seulement que vous m'aimiez by Rainer Werner Fassbinder.

On Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd, November, the Brooklyn-based projects, Xeno & Oaklander and Martial Canterel, came to Paris for concerts at the Mecanique Ondulatoire. We were very curious and enthusiastic about seeing them play live, so we took the car, and we were seduced as much by the hypnotic shows they made, as by the very attractive personality and intelligence of Liz Wendelbo and Sean McBride. The recording of a magical moment. We also played a selection of songs and bands they like, from Brigade Internationale to Baard, Arvid Tuba, Ende Shneafliet, Tommi Stumpff or, more surprisingly, Les Joyaux de la Princesse!

DF n°144, Interview with JOB KARMA, October 24th, 2011

One month ago, exactly on September 24th, Job Karma played in Paris for the second time since the beginning of the band in the late 1990s. It was an event we could not miss, since it is a band we have often played in our radio programmes. We had an interview with Maciek Frett near the Seine in Paris. The other two members of the band had already left to come back to Poland. It was also an opportunity to deal with the coming Industrial Festival in Wroclaw that will be held from November 10th to 13th, in which many cult bands have been invited.
The beautiful photos of the concert you see below were taken by Franck Haudrechy.

The Douche Froide compilation

In 2010, eight years after the beginning of our activities, we decided to release a celebratory compilation named Icy breath on burning flesh. This CD contains unreleased songs by 14 international artists of the dark ambient/experimental/post-industrial scene. We have chosen them because they are linked to the history of our radio show and association. We organized concerts with some of them (France Sauvage, Denis Frajerman), we worked on literary projects with some others (De Mange Machine), or we did special radio shows with their music and interviews (Drahomira Song Orchestra, Hermann Kopp, Ilitch, Nihiltronix). Of course, we have loved their music for quite some time and it was the opportunity to work with some of our music heroes, such as David Oliphant from cult bands Maybe Mental and Life Garden. So we released these lovely silk-screen printed objects which were received quite enthusiastically.
They are still available for 15 euros + postage. You just have to write to : douche.froide1@gmail.com

Here is the tracklisting: 

1. DRAHOMIRA SONG ORCHESTRA "This Famous Somewhere"
2. DAWN AND DUSK ENTWINED "Heading towards the West (2006 version)"
3. BEYOND SENSORY EXPERIENCE "H-Spell"
4. QUATTROPHAGE "Youch"
5. HERMANN KOPP "Ball der Gehenkten"
6. LES HAUTS DE PLAFOND "Die Katze essen"
7. DE MANGE MACHINE "... tout recommence, a recommencé, recommencera"
8. DENIS FRAJERMAN "Rivières de la nuit"
9. DAVID OLIPHANT "Eyes sewn shut"
10. NIHILTRONIX "Only Pain reminds"
11. FRANCE SAUVAGE "Kevin"
12. NATURE MORTE "Affaibli"
13. VLADIMIR HIRSCH "Exégète 2"
14. ILITCH "Le sofa rouge"

« Il résulte de cette initiative un ensemble de musiques programmées et expérimentales, ambiantes et sombres, énigmatiques et cotonneuses (Drahomira Song Orchestra avec son énigmatique et puissant « This Famous Somewhere »). C'est le dépassement de l'horreur par l'art. Agir dans la conscience des choses, vouloir tirer de cela une beauté, en l'occurence froide et à l'aura industrielle. La même ambition esthétique anime alors tous les intervenants (Dawn and Dusk Entwined et sa version impérieuse et orchestrale en date de 2006 de « Heading towards the West »), leur musique se présentant sous un bel objet sérigraphié: un empaquetage à connotation phallique, histoire de faire en sorte, aussi, que l'humour fasse partie de cet austère voyage, découpé en une presque quinzaine de plages fascinantes (...). Un ensemble ambitieux, une immersion »
                               Emmanuel Hennequin, D-Side

« Plutôt qu’une banale compilation de hits ou de titres incontournables qui se succèdent, l’équipe a privilégié des morceaux à ambiances qui se répondent. L’auditeur, même le novice, est amené progressivement vers des terrains de plus en plus étranges, déconcertants et harmonieux dans leur souci partage de la singularité. Musique martiale (Dawn And Dusk Entwined ; le somptueux titre de Vladimir Hirsch) ou profondément ludique (De Mange Machine) ; symphonie déglinguée (Quattrophage) ou promenade dans un rock qui découvre les souffles du monde (Denis Frajerman) ou même le blues (Ilitch) ; violons dingues et larsens en rut (Hermann Kopp, Nihiltronix), collages dada sur fond d’électro minimale (Les Hauts de Plafond), bruitisme démentiel (France Sauvage ou comment ne plus jamais appeler son enfant « Kevin ») ou ambiant cinématographique claustrophobe (David Oliphant)... Il est souvent difficile de ne pas noyer l’un ou l’autre groupe par un titre mal placé, collé à un autre avec des univers aux sensibilités rapprochées. Avec ces 14 titres inédits, ce n’est pas le cas et tous se complètent et font écho. Cet hommage à une scène protéiforme se traduit donc par un appel d’air, une résurgence souterraine : il y a dans ces courants underground énormément à découvrir. Ou à re-découvrir.
Icy Breath on Burning Flesh (un trait d’humour noir, comme une publicité Freedent ânonnée par des cadavres) se révèle un objet magistral de liberté et d’audace, une compilation indispensable également pour tous ceux qui clament qu’aujourd’hui il n’y rien de neuf ou de surprenant. »

DF n°143, Interview with CHRIS & COSEY, October 10th, 2011

Imagine you are on an island, cut off from everything, and you have Chris & Cosey playing for you. That's what happened when we went to the island called Frioul, just 30 minutes by boat from Marseille on July 7th. Furthermore, we had the chance to meet Chris & Cosey and have an interview with them. All that sounds like magic but it was true. You can even hear the seagulls behind us when we are talking.

DF n°140, August 29th, 2011


In the Summer season, we tend to be rather lazy with the show because we are also busy with other things, so no interview for this show, even though we have quite a few in our pockets that we should broadcast very soon. Nevertheless, we went to see Lars Von Trier’s latest movie, so we made a review of it, and we played three hours of very dark, cold, strange and beautiful music. Very Douche Froide style.

DF n°139, August 15th, 2011

As there are a lot of very exceptional concerts in France in the coming month of September, we have decided to focus on this for this show, apart from listening to some of the albums released recently in the field of musics we are interested in, and some rarities that we like to take out from our shelves for the pleasures of your ears only. So we dealt with the concert of Arnica with Lasher Keen in Toulouse on September 2nd (only date in France), the concert of Job Karma in Paris (first date in France ever) on September 24th and of course the fascinating programme of the Etrange Festival starting on September 2nd until September 11th in Paris. Among the guests, we will find Tuxedomoon (for a unique soundtrack of "Pink Narcissus"), Boyd Rice (for a new score on the fascinating movie "Dementia") and Marc Caro who will re-play the score of his first film "Le Bunker de la Dernière Rafale" thirty years after its creation. Of course, we will attend all these events, and you can be sure that you will hear about all this in our coming shows.

In April, we met the cult Belgian industrial band Club Moral for a long interview as they were invited to play at the Sonic Protest festival.. One part of it was made in English, the other one in French. Here is the French part of the interview. At the end of the interview, you will be surprised to hear the writer and photographer Romain Slocombe, because I invited him to attend the interview as he is working on a book with Dany Devos, the singer and performer of the band.

DF n°137, Interview with MAKINA GIRGIR/FALCO INVERNALE, July 4th, 2011

For this show, we received Philippe H. from band Makina Girgir and label Falco Invernale. We listened to his music and productions, and we asked him to take our mixing table during one whole hour and to play a selection of his favourite records. So it was like his "very best of". Even if the sound of his label can be quite catchy, electro and danceable, his tastes and origins come from some really dark bands of the eighties like Attrition, Coil, Minimal Man, Death in June or Severed Heads. A beautiful vinyl collection.
