Gtechien (france) @ The Tunnels THURS MAY 22ND!! late show, after Caribou!!!

Recommended Posts

this will be the fourth visit from those crazy frenchmen to Aberdeen, and the fourth time i'll have used the band description below!! ah well...its a good one and i cant seem to find anything else decent enough in english!

"GATECHIEN (bass & drums duo from france)

Gtechien's music is raw, stark and harshly compelling. Bassist/singer Laurent Paradot torturously carves out leads while spewing agonized grunts, groans and syllables that don't sound like words in any language, or occasionally humming along with his own bass parts. Drummer Florian Belaud's complex beats make up in energy for what they sometimes lack in precision; he and Paradot have enough rapport that a third band member would be unnecessary. The songs are disjointed in structure but flow intriguingly from one dark melody to another. If they were more polished or polite, Gtechien might be just another math-rock band, noteworthy only for their lack of guitar - but the brutal vocal antics alone would keep them from putting anyone to sleep. For an overall impression of Gtechien, a bad translation of one opinion about the duo is quite apt: "This group is likely to put a good slap to you". " Splendidezine (USA)

I'd only been drinking since about half 5. Went for a meal with me mum and dad cos they're off back to Dubai tomorrow. Heaps of red wine and a couple of drams at the meal. Plus, it was a big meal.

Must be the wine. Yeah....the wine.

you were a fucking mess, I had to escort you from the tunnels, the whole time, you were like, "Scott, I fucking hate you, I mean it, I fucking hate you", and just as we were getting to the front door, I was like, "you gonna be ok fom here", and you were like "yeah" and instantly slammed your head into either a brick wall or a very sturdy wooden door.

You fucking idiot.

You were also sleeping during the gig.
