FIGARO DE MONMARTRE
After a blinding set at this year's Strawberry Fair, we welcome back Figaro de Montmartre — a dynamic duo on stage and a happy couple in life. Together, they write, compose and perform their music. They are Electro Vintage, where cabaret meets electronic music, the Belle Epoque and revival.
She is originally from the Diamond of the Caribbean (Martinique), born on the first day of autumn in the early hours of Libra, in the year of the snake, and Figaro is his name. She made her first steps in fashion, theatre and television, crossing paths with Dyann Fuller and Roger Hanin, and collaborating with Malcolm MacLaren, Jimmy Cliff, and Alpha Blondie.
Tecla (which means “piano key” in Spanish) is a Leo born in the Africa of Europe (Italy). Tecla has been playing drums since his childhood. Figaro de Montmartre’s rhythm is inspired by the musical cultures of Egypt, Senegal, Jamaica and Britain.
DOGHOUSE are born out of the ashes of cult techno punk band, SICKNOTE. Embodying the same DIY ethics and spiritual anarchism… Laugh, dance and revolt.!!!
Hailing from Bristol, they have their own unique blend of Psychic, Electro,Techno, Acid, Punk, Cabarave They are influenced by Max Wall, Nick Cave, Leftfield, Captain Beefheart, Spike Milligan, Mark E Smith, Antonin Artaud, Kurt Weill, LCD Soundsystem, Tom Lehrer, Crass, Screaming Jay Hawkins, Samuel Beckett, Public Image Ltd, Charles Bukowski, Jaques Brel, Poison Girls, Rene Magritte, Iggy Pop, Velvet Underground, Andre Breton, The Cramps and The Situationists.
