about

Nous sommes aux débuts des années 80, et les No Future peinent désormais à mobiliser ces jeunes gens désabusés, avides d’expérimentation, et de modernité. Bref, le punk s’enlise et lasse…
En 79, la sortie du tube « Rectangle » de JACNO , transfuge Punk, ouvre la voie et achève de convaincre les plus indécis…Les riffs enragés des Rickenbacker et Fender laissent ainsi peu à peu la place aux Bip-Bip froids et robotiques des claviers analogiques Casio, Korg MS 10 et autres ARP Omni. Poses növö, retro futurisme, élégance et arrogance d ‘une jeunesse ayant trouvé dans le synthé, une froideur assumée, et la guitare électrique, le Cubass de leur génération…
Parfois maladroits, mais toujours sincères, les bidouillages, et déambulations sonores de ces groupes sont autant de propositions, et tentatives de réponses au marasme musical du début des années 80.
BIPPP offre ainsi une immersion et un témoignage didactique sur cette période qui préfigure l’apparition des home-studios et l’explosion de la musique électronique à venir….
Bon voyage au pays du TGV, de la BX, du Minitel…. et des synthés cheaps !
Revenu d’un Punk primitif dont l’énergie nihiliste et jubilatoire s’est essoufflée , une certaine jeunesse en quête d’esthétisme et de modernisme ne se retrouve plus dans les manifestations bruyantes et brouillonnes de ce mouvement régressif.

*********

Increasingly detached from the original punk formula, the modern and arty youth of the early eighties set itself to jettison an artform that had lost much of the nihilistic and exhilarating energy of its halcyon days, stuck, as it was, in an endless and noisy regression. No Future was the motto of an artform without a cause that no longer echoed with the mindset of the time.
Disheartened but eager to experiment and create, a new wave of French musician followed the beacon of Jacno’s seminal 79 hit “Rectangle”, a visionary, digital coup de grâce ,courtesy of a former punk which dealt the Rickenbacker and Fender era a fatal blow. The cold and robot-like bips of analogic keyboards took over. Casio, Korg MS 10, Arp Omni were the new paraphernalia of the növö generation. The ideal conveyers of its retro-futurist elegance and self-professed cold arrogance. They were pinnacles and symbols which turned as potent a fetiche as the electric guitar in the fifties or the laptop in the nineties.BIPP recalls the glory of a selected few. The cream of the crop of the shooting stars and cult band that followed in the footsteps of Kas Product, Mathematiques Modernes or Charles de Goal.
