Industrial pioneers Cabaret Voltaire created the soundtrack to Babeth Mondini's 1979 film Chance Versus Causality after meeting the director at a concert in which the trio shared a bill with Joy Division and William S. Burroughs. However, instead of providing an advance cut of the film so the band could painstakingly compose music to precisely fit each scene, Mondini simply told them to improvise in a similar manner to their concerts. No further guidelines or instructions were given, and the group had no clue what the film was about (in fact, they never saw it). The album essentially lives up to its title, with looped voices, slashing guitar feedback, and dripping drum machines appearing and disappearing seemingly at random, yet there's still at least some semblance of logical progression. The general mood is sinister and foreboding, but also quite whimsical, particularly in the artists' choice of samples, which are often absurd and humorous. The third track features a loop of a woman stating that a 12-foot-long ant held her positively transfixed, while the final track starts out with a bizarre squawking noise that could either be a baby or an animal. It seems obvious that the group was having fun coming up with weird sounds and chucking them in the mix, and it keeps the album amusing and intriguing. Even compared to other Cabaret Voltaire output from this period, this is nothing like their more punk-influenced Rough Trade releases. It's much more in the vein of what Industrial Records would release as 1974-76 (reissued by Mute in 2019, at the same time as this soundtrack) or the early experiments included on Methodology '74/'78: The Attic Tapes. Not a lost classic by any means, but still highly entertaining. ~ Paul Simpson

Iggy et les Stooges, l'aube punk

En 1969, une bande d’auto-proclamés crétins dynamite le rock’n’roll à coup de distorsion et de textes nihilistes. A la tête de ces Stooges, Iggy Pop, une sorte de Nijinski habité et révolté, destiné à devenir le parrain du punk rock à venir.

L'âge d'or du rock indé américain en 10 albums

Après des 80’s bien synthétiques, les guitares font un violent come-back durant la décennie suivante et infiltrent tous les courants du rock indépendant. Indépendant d’un système et de la masse. Comme un courant alternatif hérité de l’esprit subversif et bricolo du punk qu’on retrouve chez le Velvet Underground de Lou Reed ou les Stooges d’Iggy Pop. Retour sur 10 albums marquants de ces denses années 90.

Et Nirvana tua le rock'n'roll...

Il y a 32 ans naissait Nirvana, l’embardée punk la plus inattendue de la fin du XXe siècle. Carrière éclair, tubes mondiaux, hordes de fans et épilogue tragique pour un phénomène planétaire. Et si la bande de Kurt Cobain n’était autre que le dernier groupe de l’histoire du rock ? L’ultime phénomène générationnel du genre pour ne pas dire son dernier mythe ?
