Bot'Ox / Babylon By Car Lp
Metal sheet and iron crashing, broken glass and smoking rubber. Freewheeling, lost in Indiana on Road 66, the illgetimate couple, hit by the Grace of God, is slowly giving up the ghost.
Who are they ? James Dean and Lady Di ? Eddie Cochran and Grace Kelly ?
Futuristic anonymacy “de rigueur”, the puzzle would have to be put together again, the dislocated members re-assembled: the blond locks, the supporating brains, the tattooed fore arms, the fishnet stockings on a pair of thighs and the red lipstick one hundred percent real blood-red.
At the scrap yard, the remains of the wreck. At the elephant cemetary, the barrels riped open. In the abandonned garages of the world’s suburbia, the only thing left is the funny smell of burnt tires, fried cigar liters, and stripped steel factories. Luxury, calm and pleasure, the grass is proudly growing between the metalic ruins.
The only ghastly certainty : before the final crash, on the black box, it says the car radio sound system was vibrating to the sound of Bot’Ox.
Bot’Ox, or Julien Briffaz and Benjamin Boguet, the half of Tekel and the whole of Cosmo Vitelli.
A parisian encounter in a dark recording studio near République, under the mark of Saint Ambroise, or in the middle of machines, synthesizers, effects emulators, where a pioneer bond was born. Hours of rush, borrowing here and there the roughest sounds for a tangible and sensorial experience, starting with abstract to cut, prune, saw, cut and cut, again and always, to find lucid melodies and blistering rythms.
At the finish line, already four Maxi singles, on four essential labels (DFA, I’m a Cliché, DC Recordings, Marketing) to play at home, in clubs, or of course, in your car.
Keep rolling blissful driver, have fun fun on the autobahn, make your Cadillac roar in Vegas: speakers on full mode, hair in the wind, careless and alive…
It will make the crash only better, and Bot’Ox will sing to your glory.
