Okay, it's time for shameless self-promotion.
I was 21 yrs old and now no more is about me, my self and I, recording my own Music from 19 to 21 years old, on a 4tx tape recorder and a few more on my first pc. I released those songs on tape, 5 or 6, I can barely remember the exact number now, - it is like eons far. I used to send them to fanzines and radios, and even to some nice folks which, now and then, read a review, wanted to buy a copy.

The Music: I was pretty driven by noise bands such as Distorted Pony, Unsane, Sonic Youth, but also by Rosa Mota, Christian Death, The Cure, - I mean, I bathed into distortion pedals' sound and trying to give a shape to the buzz inside my head. I mean, I really had fun. And now, after more than 10 years, here we are, - my friends of Sometimes and Handwriting rec decided to release a sort of memorial CD, featuring almost all of those invisibile tracks. A limited edition of 300 copies, fully remastered. A booklet featuring the original tapes artoworks, vintage photos.. total fun. I mean, it's never too late, even when it's too late.
More songs, after a jump into myspace, - the CD is around the discogs corner, or drop a line to
