s e q u e n c e s è un punto di partenza, un luogo astratto tra spazio e tempo, dove il binomio analog/digital è sempre in continuo contrasto, neo-postpunk, psichedelia, nuove tendenze retrofuturiste. Dal vivo i Vuduvox, duo franco-belga ebm synthpunk [maggiori dettagli nei contenuti dell'evento], di spalla i romani Last Movement, band più legata a sonorità noise rock/garage/psych, da poco usciti per Bloodrock Records/Goodfellas. Segue aftershow tutta la notte. Ci vediamo dunque Sabato 20 Maggio, nel cuore del Pigneto, al Trenta Formiche, locale punto di riferimento dell'underground romano e non solo, che da anni supporta la scena indipendente, proponendo sempre live di qualità e format trasversali.

White noise, black light, cyber-larsen: VUDUVOX are a tense two-piece, forging radical electro groove with an attitude and politically un-correct lyrics whose motto could best be summed up as “no compromise, no surrender !”
Originating from rainy post-industrial Flanders, their pulsing bass sequences and minimal drum lines compete with electro-perx, android guitar riffs and angst-ridden vocals. But VUDUVOX are no clones and simply offer the sound of things to come. Needless to say, these two arrogant bastards are rather too cold, raw and uncompromising for the mellow French scene and play abroad as often as they can! Their first album “Vaudou électrique”, released on EKP on Nov. 21st 2014, was pre-mixed by Dirk Da Davo of The Neon Judgement and mastered by Len Lemeire of Implant/32Crash and Maurizio Fasolo of Pankow. It is distributed worldwide by Audioglobe, Out of Line, POPoNAUT, Rara Avis, Broken Silence etc. and has been enthusiastically reviewed from Bielarus to Brazil…
On the sly, J-C -vox and machines- is also the frontman of French minimal electro act BUZZ, who since 2006 have self-released five albums mastered by Len Lemeire (Implant) and gigged from Lisbon to Stockholm, sharing the stage with The Cassandra Complex, Implant, Parade Ground, 32Crash, Spectra Paris, Trisomie 21, Neon Electronics, Luc Van Acker and the likes.
When he was finally joined by Olivier T. -who also plays live electro-perx for GrandChaos and SA42- they decided it was time for a few musical readjustments and a name change. And VUDUVOX was born.
As for name-dropping, while BUZZ’s albums featured remixes by Dirk da Davo, Implant, David Carretta, Millimetric, People Theatre, HIV+, Bertrand Siffert (viz. The Young Gods), SA42, Void Kampf and Darkmen -to name but a few-, others by Pankow, Dolls of Pain, Danny Briottet (viz. Renegade Soundwave, Depeche Mode), David Harrow, NTRSN, Combat Voice and Bak XIII have been pouring in for VUDUVOX.
