"Howie Reeve is a unique and singular figure in the current British underground. Having spent over 20 years playing in a number of key Glasgow bands, since 2012 he has been performing solo on acoustic bass guitar, delivering a fragmented and dexterous music that takes in post-punk and avant-folk. Increasingly turning to songwriting, he further engages audiences with cryptic, intimate and unsettling lyrics. Resolutely DIY in his approach to music, he lives in Glasgow but appears to be perpetually on tour, whether in the UK, Europe or Japan." (Chris Joynes)
"Unplugged-punk genius Howie Reeve is a linchpin in Glasgow's DIY community…a breathtaking bass player." (Nicola Meighan, The Herald)
Previous collaborations include Andy Kerr (NoMeansNo), Mike Watt (Minutemen/The Stooges) and GW Sok (The Ex).
Léonore Boulanger studied drama, experimental jazz improvisation and Persian music in Paris.
Her music reflects her wide interest in African folk and in composers such as George Crumb, Teiji Ito, Harry Partch and singer Meredith Monk.
For their fifth album, "Un lièvre était un très cher baiser " Léonore Boulanger & Jean-Daniel Botta with percussionist Laurent Sériès compose and decompose a set of fragments of the outsider art poetry of Ernst Herbeck from Gugging center in Austria.
Small formats for the movement, sung in German as in a Kindergarten Krautrock : imaginary folk, music boxes, r'n'b medievalism, motets and futuristic madrigals set up like hopscotches, Byzantine mathematics
