WHAT THEY SAID...

" I've been listening to her CDs and liking 'em a lot. They give me those half awake nightmares.This is really good stuff! Damnation."
LONESOME WYATT,THOSE POOR BASTARDS -

- " I really love her music. It's great, musically and vocally.A bit of Joy Division smashed into Lydia Lunch, but it isn't a rip-off of either. Nice videos, too. It's all great, but " Noisi(h)er Silence" is honestly phenomenal. I'm impressed and even more honored by the fact that she likes my music. "
ZEBULON,SONS OF PERDITION -

- " The instrumental tracks and her voice are unusual and special.If she used a real drummer everything would be perfect."
RHYS CHATHAM -

- " Madame B composes pieces which are so flavourful as the original New York No Wave's productions.If the good fairy bend little over the cradle, she has everything to become the French Lydia Lunch"
YG,EX DADA'S NOISE -

- " Her stuff is crazyyyy! "
OTTO VON SCHIRACK -

- " Twisted thoughts and angry incantations over wonderful mechanical clattering and surreal washes of sonic gloom. Moody introspection and brooding sensuality. Deeply personal music from a true artist."
GUILTY STRANGERS -

- " On a minimalist music, Madame B proclaims her cries of pain or hope to create an obsessing haunting atmosphere, which takes us far, in a dark and melancholic world. A different sound which is worth it. "
COLD WAVE YEARS -

MY NEW ALBUM @AFMUSIC


BUY MY NEW ALBUM HERE ( wave files ) : http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/psalm-37.29/id482101700

"Madame is a hard working musician and it does not looks like she never stops: she actually never stops! And with the time its music is getting better and better. This last release should convince you as this is the best work she ever released, more complex, better produced and featuring a wider variety of sounds from post-punk to dark apocalyptic folk. Oh did I forgot to mention? This record is also darker than ever! Good news isn’t it? Run!

Madame B is from France. She proposes a unique approach in its music, one could spell post punk but not only. Instinctively composed, the songs take their origins in a large variety of genres from post punk to noise rock and other more bizarre sounds. The sound is raw, the instruments changing and the emotion permanent. Many will surely try to define the music while other will simply let it play and feel it, what is surely the best option. Just enjoy!" ZFR

People Who Do Noise

People Who Do Noise is a Documentary Music ,directed by Adam Cornelius and released in 2008.

Synopsis:

'People Who Do Noise' is a film about the experimental music of Portland, Oregon. Extensive interviews and intimate performance footage provide an intense portrait of the motivations, emotions, and ideas that go into this uncompromising, sometimes brutal musical form. Unwavering in its focus, the film brings to light an art form unfathomable to many, with only the words of the musicians themselves providing any explanation for the pulsating sonic chaos they create.
The film takes a very personal approach, capturing the musicians working alone with no interference from a live audience. What often took place in crowded basements or dark smoky venues was stripped bare for the cameras, providing an unprecedented glimpse of the many different instruments and methods used.
Covering a wide range of artists and styles, the film features everything from the absurdist free-improvisations of genre-pioneers Smegma, to the harsh-noise assaults of Oscillating Innards and everything in between. Many of the artists in the film, such as Yellow Swans and Daniel Menche, have performed and sold records all over the world. In spite of such successes, noise music remains one of the least understood and most inaccessible of genres.
With an unflinching cinematic style, the film defies any trend-setting or commercial representation, opting instead for a stark portrayal of a musical underground at its most genuine and vital. For the subjects of the film, noise music is a way of life; a life in opposition to the tidy, orderly, and vacuous pop-culture experience.

Lyrics "the only one":

Whatever you confess
The feelings you express
No matter how you dress
You're different from the rest
The way you live your life (x2)
You are the only one who thinks like you
You are the only one who dreams like you
You are the only one the only one
Behind the bluest flame
They'll never guess your game
Your version of success
Is different from the rest
And the way you live your life
The way you live your life
You are the only one who thinks like you
You are the only one who dreams like you
You are the only one the only one

MADAME B & DRUNKEN C ( chronique + videos )



"Madame B & Drunken C: la No Wave qui vient du sud
La chronique de VERTIGO

Tout véritable fan de rock est capable de se réinventer un passé de concerts fantasmés. J’ai même récemment rencontré un type de trente ans qui, l’alcool aidant, se souvenait d’avoir vu Joy Division aux Bains Douches…
Si néanmoins vous n’avez pas eu la chance de vivre à New York entre 1974 et 1983 et si vous regrettez de n’avoir découvert que tardivement les artistes de la scène locale de l’époque qui pour la première fois donna un véritable statut aux femmes (de Patti Smith à Kim Gordon en passant par Debbie Harris, Tina Weymouth, les sœurs Scroggins et Lydia Lunch) alors jetez une oreille sur les productions de Madame B et Drunken C.
Celles-ci n’ont rien à envier à ce qui se faisait de mieux à l’époque.

Toutes deux sont des adeptes du Do It Yourself et du LoFi, des championnes du Less is More et des personnalités protéiformes aux projets multiples (Les Enfants Sales et The Desolation Singers pour Madame B, nombreuses collaborations pour Drunken C).
Les morceaux de leurs CD (qui sont en téléchargement gratuit chez Zorch Factory Records) ont souvent un côté expérimental mais là où tant d’autres s’égarent et nous font ch*** copieusement, elles agissent en orfèvres et nous offrent de véritables petits bijoux sonores.
Chez Drunken C, les ambiances sont proches de celles des morceaux les plus mélodiques de Sonic Youth (Mary is dead since, Dream Evil, Rumor across the town…)
A l’écoute de Madame B, c’est plutôt à Lydia Lunch que l’on songe (I am the worst, Rock And Roll -une étonnante cover de Gary Glitter- )
Ces comparaisons (pas flatteuses car plus que justifiées) pourraient donner l’impression qu’on ergote sur leur originalité, ce que démentira l’écoute de morceaux tels Toc Toc Toc de Drunken C ou I am sorry that I hate you de Madame B.
Evidemment, elles ne viennent pas de New York, ni de Berlin, de Londres ou de Manchester mais du sud de la France. Je veux quand même croire qu’elles se frayeront leur chemin et j’espère qu’en 2040, je croiserai un type d’une trentaine d’années qui, l’alcool aidant, me certifiera les avoir vues sur scène en 2011."

Concert FRUSTRATION _ San Sebastian 2011

Point de frustrations au concert de FRUSTRATION!
Facile? non,VRAI!
C'était bon d'un bout à l'autre.
Et même aprés, abordables et drôles, les membres de FRUSTRATION vous raviront!
J'ai apprécié leur simplicité et leur façon si nature de ne pas se prendre au serieux.
La preuve, quand je félicite le groupe pour sa prestation,le guitariste de me répondre " on a un peu trop fait les cons quand même! "
Bref j'ai vraiment passé un bon moment,je repars ravie!
Encore un groupe qui ne me décoit pas, que ce soit musicalement et humainement!
BRAVO ET MERCI!
Entre deux pas de danse improbable, j'ai tenté quelques photos que voici...

SISTER DOLOROSA - Madame B and Viktoria Matthews 's song/video




The lady in the dark is looking for a spark
May her sorrow be only a shadow...


Are you bleeding Sister Dolorosa
Is it tears in your hands?
Are you crying Sister Dolorosa
Is it blood in your hands?


Arms open , she's looking after you
Arms open , she will confort you
She will take your tears
She will take your fears
She'll swallow your sorrow


Are you bleeding?
Are you bleeding Sister Dolorosa?


May your pain be only a rain.
Let it drain.
Let me contain your pain.


Are you bleeding Sister Dolorosa
Is it tears in your hands?
Are you crying Sister Dolorosa
Is it blood in your hands?

Madame B's New Video : SKIN and BONES

Like Paul Clayton's Murder Ballads, this is a collection of traditional (or newer songs that sound traditional) folk songs performed by a solo singer accompanying himself on guitar. Gitter's singing is much more animated, however (the liners say his screech at the end of "Skin and Bones" wrecked the studio microphone). The lively "Finnegan's Wake" is a highlight. Cover art fans should note that the haunted house cover is by Charles Addams. The album was recorded in 1957.


AND THIS IS MY COVER OF "SKIN AND BONES" :

mardi 8 mars 2011

EXPLOSE

Mon corps rempli d'équimoses se déchire de l'intérieur.
Mon coeur déborde et dégouline le long de mes cuisses.
Mes entrailles s'extirpent et cherchent à s'enfuir de cette enveloppe de chair.
Mon âme s'éparpille au gré de mes angoisses et de tes sarcasmes.
Le goût amer et sucré de la mélancolie envahie discrètement mon palais qui s'en délecte.
Ma langue recherche désespérément à lécher ces plaies remplies de ton amour perdu.

----------------------------------------------

First I wrote this in french in 2001, then I translated it 10 years later and made a song.
THE SONG IS IN ENGLISH , YOU CAN LISTEN HERE :

Explode by Madame B

MADAME B MEETS GUILTY STRANGERS 's free album

By "Zorch Factory Records" :

Madame B can't stop doing music and likes to collaborate with talented musicians. This meeting with the Americans of Guilty Strangers that recently released a full-length album here shows once again how interesting the mix and confrontation between different musical universes can be. Post-punk tunes, experimental waves and batcave inspired melodies are brought to new highlihts in this record anyone should enjoy!

Info and download here : http://www.zorchfactoryrecords.com/






By "Vault 106" :

Madame B meets Guilty Strangers is a collaboration between French D.I.Y. experimentalist provocateur Madame B, and U.S. post-everything gloomrockers Guilty Strangers. While elements of both factions' previous works can be found here, there are some unexpected turns into musical territories unexplored by either artist before this release.

The collaboration took part via email exchanging of tracks, and took shape over a very short period of time. Madame B described the working process as "quick, true and passionate...and so real!"

CAMP Z + MADAME B



Seduced by each other’s feeling, references and way of walking the musical underground, Madame B and Manu/Zorch decided to unit their forces to release this multi-colored mid-length record, driving the listener from raw garage punk to experimental sounds. Freedom has been the moto for this creation full of spontaneity. The duo also invited Joy Disaster's Nicolas Rohr to ignite some of their songs with its powerful guitar!

Enjoy! Info & download here : http://www.zorchfactoryrecords.com/the-news/134-camp-z-madame-b.html
