A few words about BK, Before Karezza... For all you young'uns, George was always a man apart. Even in his own band, The Micronauts, he probably did not fit. They still produced some of the most amazing « french » music [it did not sound french] of the late nineties. Let's pick up three favourites and you can do the rest: THE JAG : Jocelyn Brown dipped in sulphuric acid. Dipped Slowly. it hurts so good. ? BRUCE LEE? [Underworld The Micronauts remix]. Noise drilled through your forehead like a Mantra. Once again: slowly. A Pulp Ivan Smagghe's classic that he wishes he could still play. BLEEP TO BLEEP, album perdu, the end of travelling together, the beginning of new travels, inner and outer.
From our point of view what started then almost looks like a retreat. Actually, it was a retreat: George locked himself in his [mind blowing] studio making music that would not see the light of the day, sacrificing young virgins [Kondrad Black, Jackson, Jesse Hearthrob] to endless nights of knobtwiddling. We lost George... And then we lost George.
The tracks represent the alchemical transformation that has been happening, is happening. they are the culmination of all this self work through tantric magick and yoga, gurdjeff's self observation exercises, meditation, Crowley and Spare's magickal systems, trips to thehimalayan foothills to practice & study with indian gurus and the Andes for ayahuasca ceremonies. They are a release/delving into deeply rooted subconscious material that found its way into the music. Almost all are oneoff live recordings done in a trance. Other results were profound ontological experiences that shook me to the very core and changed my views on everything »
