5.00 - On Sale

Les mêmes causes produisent les mêmes effets. Le sud des U.S. généra les Unknowns, ici le notre engendre les Zodiacs. Obscure pépites de rockabilly, White rock délirant, guitare Gretsch en furie, fantômes et zombies en tout genre, tubes de Guronzan, chaussures bicolores, voilà l'univers des Zodiacs.

Les fifties revisitées en 2008 à l'heure des mutations génétiques de l'Ile du Docteur Moreau et mises à jour par la sorcellerie numérique. On ne ressort d'un concert des Zodiacs qu'avec le sentiment confus que la fin des temps est proche!

Produit par Serge Fabre.

A true vinyl ep, four titles, cooked on the wood fire, a sacred fire… like minimalist Fleshtones and trembling, which would not have more than the skin on the bones and the last thin filament from an old valve amplifier to light the road. The Zodiacs repaint their Pink City with the colors of surf-music eternally blue and white, and the colors of the iridescent sea rollers of the Californian coast. Heir assumed to Link Wray or the Unknowns, their “Too Far Gone To go back Now” (Bang! Records) adds to the Toulouse scene the hiccupped and tart touch, key of its roots firmly anchored to the crossroads of the Fifties and Sixties. Special mention with “The Fury of Katrina”, impossible to circumvent instrumental inherent one in the exercise, and true moment of grace of the batch, false airs of traditional induced but by no means forger, on the level of a nicely controlled subject…

(Jean-Luc Manet, Les Inrockutibles #686).

The Zodiacs engraved with flint four explosive titles which condense in less than ten minutes what the fifties have produced of damaged splendid loans to make the brilliant clowns for a bottle of hard stuff. A treat. The fans of the Novas, Phantom and Hasil Adkins will not return from there and those of Cramps and Link Wray will find there the Spirit and the Roots of the bad music for bad people.
The singer, backed by a strong band, is a crowned phenomenon, completely demonic, howling the truth, calling upon the deep roots of Rock'n'Roll which is the world he belongs. It is funny, wild and out in vinyl.

(DIG IT # 45)
