Lyrics :

Not only my hands washed your shame Now you know the game
Set aflame someone’s name A two fingers challenge
It’s what good business is about
Burning in Twitter land Shine on Instagram, damn !
I’m rendering assistance For a better reputation Both happy in the game
Am I an influencer? An IRL exchanger? Buy yourself a new frame
Did I promise something I’m not? Your redeem voucher ends, ends real soon
Is my aim controversial? Both happy in the game My power trade potential Clears your pricy domain
It’s what good business is about
Burning in Twitter land Shine on Instagram, damn !
I’m rendering assistance
A fluide trade protection Both happy in the game
Am I an influencer? An IRL exchanger? Get yourself a new frame

Our friend Bidi is no more…

Bidi Van Drongelen

Bidi Van Drongelen

Hello all,

We heard yesterday that our friend Bidi Van Drongelen has passed away in his sleep at 47. We met Bidi in Belgium in 2004 he basically took our band out of France. He booked us in the Benelux for several years and became a good friend. “Amazing !” became a running joke amongst us and his vague resemblance with Robert Plant was the source of many stupid jokes. He had an incredible energy we thought he’d be the death of us all. He put us in contact with Exile On Mainstream (Andreas Kohl) and we started putting out records and touring in Germany from 2007 up until 2013. We will miss Bidi. And our thoughts go to his close and loved ones.

In Memoriam: Bidi van Drongelen (1969-2017)

Julien Allanic leaves, Julien Divisa is back

Montreuil nov 1995-Tokyo nov 2015

20 years of rehearsals, recordings, decibels, sweat, miles, gas station sandwiches, smiles, hand shakes, headbangings, too long after shows, too short nights, goodbies in French, English, German, Deutsch, Japanese…
20 years after, tiredness and a sort of wear took over. Energy is the most important component of We Insist’s music.
We insist but we don’t cheat, so the bushbash show in Tokyo was my last one.
I’d like to thank every musician who have played in the band, Eric and Etienne specially, for the last years of touring. Aude, Adèle and Coline for all those nights without daddy « who’s gone play his rnr with his folks again ». And everyone who helped the band (sometimes in very difficult conditions), fans, record companies, booking agencies, other bands, sound and light engineers, recording studios, venues, rock critics, associations, festivals, photographers, graphic designers, everyone who buy or sell cds, all those who put us up…
Of course, We Insist goes on and Julien Divisia (who left the band after Babel…) is back, and there’s something afoot.
My We Insist years remain among the most important and one million of images will go with this beautiful story of friendship.
Thank you.

Julien Allanic

Prosperi Buri (FR, Inmybed)
Un rock maniaco-lo-fi de grande classe.
Depuis une adolescence qu’on devine pénible, Prosperi Buri maltraite de concert la bande dessinée et le rock. Après avoir sévi dans des formations toutes plus obscures les unes que les autres, c’est sous son nom d’artiste et accompagné d’un groupe affuté qu’il a publié chez Inmybed deux E.P. d’un rock maniaco-lo-fi de grande classe.
https://prosperiburi.bandcamp.com/

Perfect Idiots (FR)
Un groupe qui praline Paris à la sauce grunge punk blues depuis 2007.
Loufoqueries et mélodies qui tabassent sont au rdv sur scène et sur leur premier album « Science Fiction » sorti début 2015.
https://perfectidiots.bandcamp.com/

Social Square (FR, ♥ Influenza Records ♥ )
Trio basé à Paris, France. Bien qu’ils auraient pu venir de plein d’autres endroits, comme Glasgow, ou Bordeaux.
Ils aiment les chansons bruyantes qui possèdent néanmoins une mélodie.
Mais elles doivent être bruyantes.
https://socialsquare.bandcamp.com/

Appletop (FR, Armellodie)
Le deuxième album d’appletop, Brave Mountains, est sorti en 2014 via le label écossais Armellodie.
Il a permis à Appletop de faire 23 fois le tour du monde et de jouer des milliers de concerts.
Rendez-vous au Freak scene festival à la flèche d’or pour le dernier concert de la tournée Brave Mountains!

Disco Doom (CH, Exploding In Sound Records)
Zurich based Disco Doom have been working since the late 90s.
In 2013 they toured Europe opening for Built to Spill and in early 2014 released their new record «Numerals». During their extensively touring throughout Europe and the US in the last years, Disco Doom opened also shows for such notables as Dinosaur Jr., Deerhoof, Butthole Surfers, Lou Barlow, Giant Sand and played festivals like the ATP Festival London/UK, Filter Los Angeles/CA, SXSW Austin/TX, Treefort Festival Boise/ID, Mac Rock Harrisonburg/VA, etc.
https://discodoom.bandcamp.com/

We Insist! (FR, Vicious Circle Rec)
We Insist! is an odd rock band from Paris that has released 5 albums and has toured Europe extensively.
The line-up was gradually reduced from 6 to 3, for many different reasons. From now on, we are playing as a trio.

L’homme aux mille disques.
Le génie aux mille crayons.
Celui qui a réussi à faire rentrer les dinosaures du rock indé dans des petites cases sera au Freak Scene pour échanger des dessins-minutes avec vous.

David Snug
https://davidsnugblog.wordpress.com/
Il est barbu, il porte un bonnet et il traîne ses guêtres dans une BD éducative du meilleur goût.
C’est pas le grand schtroumpf mais soyez gentils avec lui quand même parce qu’il connaît John Lennon personnellement.
Et parce que sinon il vous dessinera.

Shyle Zalewski

Musicien lo-fi punk le jour avec Edam Edam.
Gribouilleur lo-fi de premier ordre dans ses bandes dessinées la nuit.
Entre les deux, il met en page Superfuck, le fanzine qui porte trop bien son nom.
Et quand il a une minute à lui, il aide aussi les grand-mères à traverser les rues.
