*Full Mode stands for the full show, with lights synchronisation, videoprojection, machines...

** Zu-ish Mode stands for the most basic and rude line-up: drums, bass, saxophone, grötterie, vocals, no machine, no lights. This mode is close to Primus or Zu in the sound it produces.

Reviews (samples)

[...]Une patate réjouissante !

[...]une puissance brute qu’on attendait pas là , des plans free jazz rock core à la Zu .[...]

C’etait un concert unique [...] et le public a ete totalement séduit .

Et puis , quelle presence scenique , mes aieux

Ils sont totalement malades , costumés , le batteur habillé en nana SM en cuir rouge avec un voile à la Sheraazade se faisant fouetter à mi concert avec un poulet en plastique.

Un univers loufoque totalement assumé , avec quelques pointes d’humour noir tres rafraichissant , style " On est venu vous faire peur , on a pas besoin d’une école et d’un scooter "

Grand moment ...

2012 - Elements - Description

“Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.” - Frank Zappa

This quotation clearly draws Sebkha-Chott’s way of thinking art and creation.

Driving their way with a definitely new and out-of-norms music, which will let you behind as soon as you might try to categorize it, members of Sebkha-Chott are exploring new pathes, one after the other, deeply diving into the concept of total(iratistic) art.

If Zappa is quoted as the major influence, Sebkha-Chott’s roots might also be found close to 70’s prog rock and Zeuhl music of Magma, next to west coast hip hop and swedish metal, or obviously in the freedom of free jazz:

Postpone your suicide, the final gig between Frank Zappa, Dimebag Darrell, Sun Ra and MC A will happen on living side!!

On stage as on CD or on internet, Sebkha-Chott comes with a whole decorum and gala’s clothes, in the shape of Ohreland Kourt, a dictatorship straightened by Wladimir Ohrelianov II the Tyrant. He talks directly to you and finger-points you, he congratulate you -once, not twice-, he tests yourself, he shouts at you, he turns you upside down, making you feel between hilarity, fear, delight, so much feelings which crashed one with the others and give bearth to an oppressing and bizarre atmosphere, made of dark humor and Pornoïac visions.

For a subversive dictatorship? Don’t vote, just go and see Ohreland!
