Last Saturday October 22th 2011 I had the great pleasure to see again one of my favorite French rock bands Conger! Conger! performing Live their new and first album « At the corner of the world » at Studio Decanis in Marseille !!
Each of their shows always contains the promise of some theatrical and musical surprises. Maybe it comes because the drummer Patrice De Benedetti is a dancer as well and his both mates Pierrot Gon at the guitar and Didier Bautzmann at the bass are very sensitive and inventive musicians !! They really created a new sound, highly structure their songs and mightily play them on stage sometimes at the limit of our ears’ abilities…:) Hoping you will enjoy the photos and the short videoclip I filmed that night and spread the word if you like them !
It was the first time I went to that place « Studio Decanis » and I really appreciated to find out a new cosy and well adapted space dedicated to the music and the arts in general in the town. So many dynamic clubs closed due to financial difficulties (cf Le Balthazar) or administrative issues (cf recently L’EnthrÃ¶py, temporarly I hope) despite the town is preparing to be the capital of Europe for the culture in 2013…
Anyway if you like Conger! Conger! you will find more videos and pics about that band on Meltingpod HERE LIVE at CafÃ© Julien in November 2010 and HERE Live at La Machine Ã Coudre in April 2010, by the way two nice places to listen to Live Music in Marseille too !!
PS : I got some computer’s major issues these last months but they seem to be fixed now so I will try to publish asap the reviews of older events where I took pics or videos or recorded interviews…stay in touch !!
