Le Grand Sbam – Furvent (FR)

We learned that the scene of Lyon is very productive and extraordinary last year when PoiL hit us with their thunderstorm of sound. The three protagonists of the Hyper-trio between of genius and insane are the foundation of the 8-piece Le Grand Sbam and set new standards in the prog-scene. Fast, intricate, vivid and fresh – they make their Fathers Zheul or Art Zoyd look a bit sluggish. The project Furvent is nothing less than a Gesamtkunstwerk. Based on the series of novels by Lyon author Alain Damasio, famous for his weird dystopias, the eight musicians create very differentiated and complex acoustic pattern. On top they use costumes and light design to round up their performace.
