June 18th, 2021 : I heard Yogui and Bilou were playing a show for the release of their first album. Owl ! I've known these guys from the obscure scenes in Nevers for quite a few years. An address, a time, my two acolytes, here we are, driving for an hour aboard the most beautiful car : my Renault super 5 spring. Because, yes, it is the first concert of spring!
This is the story of two guys who crossed paths in the street. Their means of communication seems incompatible – one uses body language while the other gargles up unusual sounds. Eventually they observe, listen and discover each other, so why not learn each other's language?

In 2018, two very enthusiastic friends of mine, Kyle Day and Marius Atherton, showed me a mixtape, trembling with excitement. Junkdrawer’s “Dunce Party” was assembled by Josh Lindenfelzer, visual artist, dummer and mixtape master, who put together 59 minutes of obscure tunes and odd sounds.
