'O' Is Numero Uno

January 2007

MVRemix: What LPs have you been listening to in the last couple of days?

Yann: Good question! So many! Blurt, James and the Contortions, Aids Wolf, Olivier Messiaen's 'Quatuor Pour La Fin Du Temps', one my favorite contemporary compositors. Pansonic's 'Kesto', Voodoo Muzak's 'Cartilage', really original post rock from France. East West Blast Test's 'Popular Music For Unpopular People'. It is pseudo experimental music. But, I like it. Khanate 'It's Cold When Birds Fall From The Sky', really impressive live. So loud! I really like the track's structures. Grand Ulena's 'Neosho', at last but not least. Their music is totally out of description. Improvised, perhaps a bit math noise. Can't top to listen to this! Hunting Lodge, Ex Models, Oren Ambarchi, Zoviet France, Pan American, Boris, Lightning Bolt, Derek Bailey. Also, many CDs from Ultra Milkmaids. I've bought some days ago. They're amazing.

MVRemix: Abortion. Pro-choice or pro-life?

Yann: I'm not a biologist, nor Catholic. I don't have any science, but a lot of doubts. I'm full of doubts. So what could I say about life? Just that sometimes, I feel totally anti-life? No, it would be stupid. Of course, I'm pro-choice because it can be an important right. I can't imagine a world without this right.

MVRemix: Euthanasia. For or against?

Yann: Today, against. But tomorrow? I'm just too young for this answer. I hope.

MVRemix: What is your opinion on MySpace?

Yann: Waste of time and infested by opportunists. We receive too many requests from fashion hardcore bands, nu metal bands and other commercial stuff. Oh, and the advertisements on MySpace are really aggressive. I hate this band called Kean. I hate these stupid smilleys. But, MySpace is also a good way to discover great musicians. We've discovered Monitors, S/T, DAT, Orthodox, Spectra, and many more through MySpace.

MVRemix: Word association. When I say a name, you say the first word that pops into your head. So, if I said, 'The Beatles', you may say 'Revolution' or 'John Lennon'. Okay? My Bloody Valentine.

Yann: Loveless.
