About last night...
This band have a special resonance with me because of their talent of course but also because of their name, simply, chosen as an homage to the famous film; The Battle of Algiers.
They gave a "secret gig" in Paris yesterday and - miraculously - again - I won tickets...
They were brilliant, literally so powerful on the small stage of the Silencio - stylish bar in central Paris created by David Lynch.
Their songs include many sonic references to important discourses in American history, including some by the unique James Baldwin.
Here are a few pictures, by myself, in the first raw, which cannot do justice to their energy - but it is just to share!
