Dustbreeders - Le Procès Cannibale -1999- (Single-Sided LP, Élevage De Poussière), France
Dustbreeders is an abstract noise trio from Metz that consists of Yves Botz, Michel Henritzi and Thierry Delles. The outfit exists since the early nineties and is known for their noise-induced deconstructive cavemen wall-of-sound cacaphony. In that sense they belong to the less industrial side of the French noise scene known for bruitistes like Vivenza or Le Syndicat.
Dustbreeders frequently collaborate with Japanese Hijokaidan vocalist Junko. The members have also played together with a large spectrum of noise and impro musicians ranging from Jac Berrocal to The Nihilist Spasm Band and are furthermore involved in too many ofshoot projects and releases to count. Dustbreeders live performances are intense and memorable, look at this to get an idea. Le Procès Cannibale was recorded in 1998 and was Dustbreeders' first release on a 12 inch format. From the liner notes:
The Cannibal Trial
Our music, more than any other, and most of all with so much more cruelty than any other, feeds itself with music, thus, its own kind. Eating other people's music, isn't that terribly inhuman? What can be heard in it, if not the scraps from a cruel banquet? And the atrocious agony of our fellow creatures?
Our Instrumentation, materially as well as methodically, is a complete alimentary canal, from one hole to another. There is obviously some litigation in our comprehension of culture, regarding every school ever, and, just as obviously, this is a court as well as a trial. A curiously fair trial, notwithstanding the torturing noise that's going on.
Which music triumphs in this cannibal trial, the one that is both judge and hangman, or the victim that's been digested but so well defended by the music-loving memory of the listener and the genius of its begetter?
Dustbreeders still exist today and their latest record can be bought over at 213 Records.
